Nice, Peter! Very cool! Congratulations and good luck on the upcoming events. I looked and don't see the flatland tele skiers though.

Seven mile trailrun 'slick rock to hell' loop. Ten mile road bike ride. 5.9 chimney solo.

Thanks Todd and Jay,

Major Aerobic Workout action in Italy!

2 races down...2 to go
From Yesterday 10k Skate: It was an honor to line up in the front row with this guy...Gianfranco Polvara, 5 time Olympian, with many great results. He finished in 24.17, I came in 3.29 later, with 24 guys between us. I was really excited off the line, hung with the leaders for 2k, but kind of paid for it as the next 13 guys passed me in a pack and I couldn't quite hang on...M5 is a heavy field, kudos to US skier Kent Murdoch, finishing 4th! Mr. Polvara was my hero for about 3 hours, but a Google search shows lots of linkage to doping scandals...Hoping he changed his ways and is skiing clean these days...I did get the thrill of a dramatic finish, holding off a concerted attack by 3 guys, made the stadium spectators scream, and I got them by 3 seconds...

Rest day today, got to go ski at Campomulo, one of the top nordic resorts in the world probably...stunningly beautiful, 150k of perfect grooming with big views...Relay race tomorrow...I get the scramble leg, classic skiing...
Final 45k marathon skate on Thursday...

Ciao,

Peter

Ran 1 mile on the Hotel Tread after the last ski run to make sure my Spring Race Schedule is safe. Ran 4 miles the day I got back and 5.5 yesterday. Have a major HM in less than 4 weeks.

Jaybro, Maysho, you guys are animals!

I was a little excited yesterday to run on Venice beach for about 100-200 yards right after sunset, coupled with a 1 hour walk after dark amongst the street vendors closing shop. I made sure to eat lustily to counter whatever calories I may have burned.

XC/Tele into Yellowstone up the Snake River Canyon
Thanks for the info about Yellowstone. We are headed up that way to do some back country skiing and camping. Will check out that trail.

Today's run on incredibly beautiful West Cliff in Santa Cruz. Exactly 5 miles out and back from the start of West Cliff to Natural Bridges and back...and flat to boot! The surfers were out, the waves were beautiful. Just a gorgeous morning.
Looking towards Steamer's Lane.

I've got about 50 days skiing in so far this winter. Probably about 600km so far. I'm not real fast but it still feels good to finish with a sweat on.
I figure we have another month of skiing here before the spring melt.

Park at Flagg Ranch. Must've been 3 feet of snow along the Canyon Rim, my pole went down all the way. Just convoys of snowmobiles on the Roads.

Parenthetically, I got a ride in Utah a few years ago on a snomobile, right to the Timpanagos TH. It was my first ride.

But Moose Flats Junction was MOBBED. Looked like serious athletes. XC and AT setups. Maybe that was the advertised marathon.

Ran 8.6 miles (14K) this aft for 23.4 miles in the 4 days I'm back. I'm running well. Not gonna renew my International UCI license and swimming lessons are on hold as well. Maybe no Tri for me this year. Focus on running. Still have time to get into NYCM with my guaranteed entry though I said I wouldn't.

Hangdog, ultra, half marathon; ran about 11? miles on the slickrock/hell and back hybrid until my phone conked out with tracking software. Ran mile to the car, charged phone, ate a bonkbreaker, one of stich's chocolate gu, drank water & coffee and read a Harvey Pekar book for half an hour. When phone had a partial charge I ran up the sand flats road a couple miles and turned around. A fifteen mile mas o menos, mostly trail run, on a chilly overcast day; life is good!

Forgot my skins and so I decided to hike in my tele boots. Luckily, snow was firm in the snow shoers' tracks (that sure seems like a dumb sport). I was able to stay on top and avoid the skin track. Always hate when people muck up the skin track.

Anyways I managed 800' vertical. Mostly breakable crust with shin-deep powder below. It's a good exercise and work to ski the breakable crust and crud.

5.09 miles through the Galligator Trail in Bozeman. Plenty of snow on the ground, no problem getting hot, temp steady at about 29 degrees. Couldn't find a satellite image taken in winter...much prettier with snow.

Fun run, lots of snow on the trail in "real time" today at 29 degrees.

Just got back from a lovely and DRY 6 miles along the Portland Waterfront. Did 8 miles up through Washington Park yesterday. Getting ready for the Fort Vancouver 15K on Sunday. I haven't raced in months, so am hyperventilating just thinking about the anaerobic hills coming up. I missed the 1/2 marathon that I signed up for in January due to that fall and back spasms.

Bad news - the Volcanic 50K sold out before I could register. So I signed up for a 15 mile trail run at Smith Rock State park. Now I dislike hiking up the Burma Road, and now I am going to run up the Burma Road and several miles beyond. I will suffer on the uphills, and I am sure that I will face plant on the downhills. Adding to the entertainment factor is that this race is scheduled for April - much earlier than the September race I originally wanted to do. Forget about carfeul preparation. Like Nike says - Just do it!

My husband will need a cliimbing partner that morning while I am getting thrashed on the trails. I think the race will take all morning with the vertical gain and distance combined - plus my ubercaution on downhill trails.

Keep inspiring me!

I've run over 25 miles in these 3 days. Prolly running longer than I should for the goal 5K Sunday but the Half in 2.5 weeks is the one I need to focus on right now.

I'm running well now and may risk underperforming both races, just to see how much mileage I can handle this soon after a ski trip. I'd like 35 -40 miles this week and take Saturday off.

I just had a pretty big week aerobically. It started a week ago yesterday, with the hangdog ultra half marathon. (15 mile run) and included 5.12 ow Thursday Saturday and Sunday. Friday and Sunday also contained gym workouts with kilometer swims. In addition I did a fifteen mile bike ride Sunday, and a forty two mile ride Monday, then topped it off with an 8 mile trailrun Tuesday. The last two days have just been work, eating and sleeping.

August will mark my fiftieth year of climbing. I'm trying to make it a big year starting now!

started running again last week after a year long hiatus.

It's so miserable...and so good at the same time. So far, I'm not pushing myself hard enough to hurt anything (bad knees, bad back, bad brain..) in particular, but trying to go for longer than 20 min without dying.

This time around, my fourth time so far, managed to get past the 20 min mark without dying, which sure is nice. I mean, I even felt like I could for longer, so I did...

But damn, nothing beats me up as thoroughly and faster than running...whew, 20 min + and the body starts the endorphin factory...yeah! Bring those endorphins ON!!!

Cheers
