Keeping at it. Gym workout Friday, after the weights and pull-ups I swam twelve laps of the pool, working up to more.

Saturday I did some invert bouldering and then ran a 8.65 mile version f the squaw flat trail in he Needles district, Canyonlands. A little dicey in the Icy pass section, where a ranger told me someone slipped, fell, and subsequently died a few weeks ago!

wow nice trail. I like Utah in the winter.

My 10K didn't PR and the salt beat me up more than the snow. But I had my clothing for running in 16 degree (-12C) dialed. 2 l/s tech tees and a s/s tech tee top, MT Hardware rock climbing pants and light capilenes bottom. Light gloves and knit cap. Worked well. After I hit the wind at the top of the hill first time I was nicely warmed without being overheated. Wore a down/parka to from Brooklyn.

8 miles yesterday. Ski trip next week and a 5 K followed by an HM in March.

You be careful! Did he die from the fall or heart attack?

Getting ready for a Century in April the road bike has come off the trainer and onto the road. Wish I had my mountain bike gear cluster on this sucker, as well as the full suspension. A switch from "Runner to Biker" today. 40 miles (roundtrip) up highway one to Waddell Creek and back to Santa Cruz. I really really really miss my mtn. bike suspension.

A view on the way back...Santa Cruz is in the 60s, at least.
About 8 miles north of Santa Cruz on Highway 1.  Beautiful day.  Great...

Set a 10K personal record today. (57:40 fwiw)

For full disclosure it had to be a PR, since it was the first one I've ever done.

Did 25 rounds of one heavy benchpress, one heavy power clean (floor to neck) and one heavy backsquat. Lifted a little over 10,000 pounds in thirty-seven minutes. My lower back was a litle stiff for two days, but otherwise, recovered well.

Nice 5.9.

Ran 5 miles before my weight work-out. Usually it is the other way around. Those raised back leg split squats with weight - huuuuurrrrrrt.

I am loving that my back is so much better than three weeks ago. Hate losing so much quality training.

One Nice 5 KM run this week, hoping for another this evening.

Having a hard time being consistent lately. One nice thing it that I am mixing the running with climbing gym sessions. Climb a couple hours, change my shoes and do a 5 to 10 KM run. Always in the evening.

I just have to remind myself that the hardest part of training/working out is getting started.

Here in Asiago Italy for the Masters World Cup - XC racing at its finest! 1200 athletes from 30yrs old to 90...from 20 countries. We race in 5 year age groups, my goal for years has been to race in Europe when I turned 50, so here I am, psyching up for a 30k Saturday, 10k Monday, possible relay spot Wednesday, and a 45k Thursday. Asiago is on the "Altopiano" a rolling open plain, in the foothills to the Dolomites. Skied the 15k loop yesterday, beautiful terrain, good climbs, sweeping downhill turns, gorgeous views. There are some really strong looking Euro's skiing around, and hanging in the coffee shops...Hoping some good months of aerobic workouts will pay off...Wish me luck!

Peter, rip it up. Have fun skiing with Kent and Reynolds and Tiernan if they are there. Don't let any of those dopesters mess with ya. Drop shoulder and push through! Racing with the Euros is a full contact sport, play by local rules.

Cheers,

First time "checking in". Had a moment there when I was like, ready to do a marathon or something. Then I went to the refrigerator and got a beer...and then another one. And then the feeling went away. Hopefully next I time I check in, I'll have something better to report.

Maysho, must be an incredible experience, way to go!

I googled up the Master XC world cup. The home page (link above) shows a photo that has me confused. These guys are racing on flat terrain and are in a sort of a telemark position. What's going on here? Anybody? (sorry, I couldn't figure out how to embed the photo).

Oh, thanks Todd. I nordic ski a lot. But I've never raced; I guess that's obvious.
