I mentioned in a blog that I'd post some fall mountain biking photos. The photos below are courtesy of Scott Ellis, who takes much better photos than I do. I keep telling myself I must take more photos. Left to right in the first picture is Josh (only know his first name), Bill Frielingsdorf, me, Scott Ellis.

Peaks Trail on the last day of riding. Fun, fun, fun...

I was in Summit County, Colorado over the weekend and saw this really cool foot-made heart, rather two hearts.

 

A lot of love went into forming this giant heart.

 

Happy Valentine's Day ~

I had a great day of skiing at the Frisco Nordic Center on Wednesday. I think Bil Danielson lapped me about 10 times on the back climb. He's going to have a great ski at the Birkebeinder this year.

 

I intended to carry the video camera yesterday so you could see what fun Meeka has "skiing" (I ski, she runs all-out with a smile on her face); but I forgot the camera. I'll get that captured later.

 

I did try to get the outdoor activities in before today. Real feel at the writing of this blog is -29 degrees in Summit County. Beyond cold. (chart below)

 

In a previous blog I mentioned that I'm monitoring body temperature and pulse. That experiment continues.

 

Due to reviewing notes from the USA Cycling Coaching Summit, I decided to add pulse oximetry to my experiment. I'm curious about the values at home (about 5,000 ft. elevation) and in the mountains at about 9,000 ft. I want to know if values change as I stay at altitude and what affect (if any) my asthma medications have on the values. I'm looking for data to help my training and racing at altitude. I'll keep you posted on that as I go along.

 

Ending a great year and looking forward to an excellent 2011. Stay warm, and Happy New Year ~
