XC Ski race (Skate) 54:47 [3] 13.3 km (4:07 / km)

Cote Dame Marie Loppet. Was not feeling super competitive at the start. Then we got going and I stayed right behind Karen for about 2 k. As she passed someone I passed too and decided to go around her as well. Soon I realized I was only 100 ft behind Gussie and jean who are quite fast. I stayed about the same distance from them to the 9k mark where the gap grew a bit. With less than 2k to go I saw them one last time and made a new push. Unfortunately I came into a tight corner a bit too hot and bit it, struggled to get back up, and lost at least 30 seconds total and my chance to catch them. At least nobody caught me. I finished 9th overall and first in my age group. Very happy with this one. Lots of real evidence that I'm getting faster.

XC Ski warm up/down (Skate) 26:00 [3] 5.0 km (5:12 / km)

Skiing before and after the race. Fingers froze too much after to do more.

Run (Treadmill) 1:00:00 [3] 6.0 mi (10:00 / mi)

OMG, my hip flexors don't lie. I was kicking hard yesterday at the ski race. I loosened up after a few minutes, but the soreness never really went away. Blister was not a problem today. I guess it's adequately hardened up.

Workout - with a partner, for time:

Extra- EMOTM 10 min - 8 box jumps (20") did 10 on last round. On the first round, I felt like my body was made of lead. I've definitely had days where I felt more explosive.

XC Ski race (Krazy Klassic) 46:00 [3] 9.5 km (4:51 / km)

4 Lap race course. It was a perfect blue extra day, but a double pole course. I'm not strong enough of a double poler, so I kick-double poled the whole thing. The top guys, of course, used skate skis and double poled everything. There was one man-made hill, and it was so steep that everyone just herringboned up it. You could ski around it, but that would slow you down, so up and down it was. On lap 3, I was at the bottom, in the track, and I lost balance and bit it! I was worried that Karen was going to catch me, but she didn't. I managed to hold her off until the end. I think I was 5th woman overall and first in my age group (of one, as usual.)

Bummer that the classic course on the south trails was too thin, but at least they were able to hold a race with the man-made snow. It wasn't bad at all... and much better than a year or two ago when they had a 10-lap course on a 1K loop.

XC Ski warm up/down (Classic) 54:00 [3] 9.5 km (5:41 / km)

One warm up lap before the race and then 2 right after to cool down, or, warm back up after chatting at the finish. Then, another lap to warm back up after the awards and lunch.

Run 1:14:00 [3] 6.2 mi (11:56 / mi)

Got home from skiing and was super sleepy, so I took a 30-minute nap and then got up for a run. The route was pretty bad. My whole neighborhood is slippery and snow-covered, so every step you slip back a bit. Some of the roads were ok, but when cars came (fairly frequently) I stepped onto the shoulder to run on the snow. I was pretty tired (wonder why... ha!) but the ankle was fine.
