rhr:46 slept:8.0 weight:167.2lbs (rest day)

going to be another long day, nothing likely to happen on training.
11 PM


Back in the right direction at least, which I'm thankful for since working 4 long days at CT Flower Show meant 3 zeros & far more crap food choices than I would have liked - so I'll take it. The goal is close but still a tad out of reach....

But Snowgaine (original target) date changed so I've got an extra week to work with anyway...

Snowshoe race (Northfield) 1:02:43 [5] 8.85 km (7:05 / km) +400m 5:47 / km
rhr:41 slept:8.0 weight:167.8lbs shoes: NB 790 {green}

Northeast Snowshoe Championships. Fast course, lots of climb, pretty warm - low 30's. Very strong field. Just didn't have it on the climbs today, finished in 43rd position (of 85). Quick change, then off to Hartford for another day of Flower Show duty. Glad to have gotten the race in, but likely my last snowshow race of the season. Will try a squeeze something long in next weekend, then its Snowgaine time...

Apparently my pre-run of the course on Wednesday, I missed quite a bit of climb on the second climb - there was an unmapped snowshoe trail that I took, mistaking it for the one to the upper part of the mountain. Thus my questioning my track and climb figures on Wed were in fact correct...

Snowshoe hills (Northfield) 50:32 [4] 7.15 km (7:04 / km) +290m 5:53 / km
rhr:45 slept:8.5 weight:166lbs shoes: 340 ORoc 2010

Ran the course for Saturday's NE Snowshoe Championships less the first 0.4m around the training field. Virtually all single track and very solid and fast footing. Well, as fast as one is capable of climbing up a mountain. Up to the summit, then back down most of the way, then back up and over Rose Ledge before descending again and coming across the base of the mountain. Friday's weather system puts a big question mark on what rain or snow might do to the course, but as it is right now, its a fast one... Ran with trail map, but no course markings so paused at most junctions to verify I was heading off on the correct bit of trail.

GPS Track begins with snowshoe run, but then includes XC skiing as well - too lazy to split the tracks up...

XC Skiing hills (Northfield) 1:33:00 [3] 11.0 km (8:27 / km) +250m 7:36 / km

Switched to XC skis and skied up the reservation road - mostly a gear check / acclimation run so didn't feel the need to hit more technical trails. Bottom to summit without stopping, or really even slowing down much - sometimes a decent diagonal stride, other times pretty much running with skis on my feet. But the new boots felt ok - warm, but heavy - and the old Trak Fishscales are still worthy - though very beat up and noisy/slow descending. Probably a tad short for me now (bought when I was a teenager) but that's probably a good thing for maneuvering off trail at the Snowgaine. Got back a bit earlier than intended, but not really enough time to go out for another loop - and I quickly talked myself out of padding bonus mileage around the teaching field loop.
8 PM


Over 50 miles for the past week. Since I've only been averaging 20-30 so far this year, it looks like tomorrow should be a very short run or perhaps a zero. CT Flower Show starts tomorrow plus taking El to Fall River for our final Radiators show tomorrow night. After 33 years the boys are calling it quits. El & I have been going to Radz shows together since '88 and started officially dating after our first show at Tipitinas in New Orleans where they'll play their final 3 shows in June. It's been a great run...

Run - Trail long (Hare & back x5) 1:27:00 [3] 15.2 km (5:43 / km)

packed snow over ice. Pretty slippery even with spikes. Every footplant would slip just enough to make it difficult.
