XC Ski race (Black mountain classic) 2:42:43 [3] 31.0 km (5:15 / km)

First 20k were awesome. The conditions were great and the course was beautiful. It was sunny and started warming up pretty quickly. I was racing pretty hard but I think 3 nights of partying hard last week caught up with me over the last 11 k. I started feeling lightheaded and off balance on the up hills. I dropped way back and slowed way down. Lost several places and actually cried at the finish line. I felt terrible and sick but mostly recovered. Tomorrow may be interesting.

Run 1:11:45 [3] 6.7 mi (10:43 / mi)

Actual moving time recorded. Ran through Louisville down to river and eventually found the greenway. Super icy in spots. Could have used crampons and an ice axe on the staircases. They don't remove snow here.
Not hilly even though I can see the hills from here.

XC Ski (Classic) 3:00:00 [3] 18.0 mi (10:00 / mi)

Ski around Deerfield park on the way home from my parents' place. It was OK, but the track was pretty shallow. It was glazed and fast, though, for the most part... other than that I had to stop and take my skis off to cross the covered bridge twice on every lap. Also, the "expert loop" was so dug up by deer, that it was half leaves and half snow, so I skipped that on laps 2-4. There was still a good hill even with the bypass. Only one time did I bite it on an oak leaf, so that's a plus, but there were lots of close moments.

I saw Jean out there. She's a 75-year-old lady who still XC ski races regularly. Those types of people are my heroes. Who cares how slow you are? You're regularly racing in your 70s! Awesome.

I passed everyone I saw - mostly like they were standing still. Pretty sure I was the fastest person there, so I think that means I won today's training session.
