Re: Whitefish Mountain Feb 2021

its been over 3 weeks and my rib still hurts. my 2nd day here I slipped going uphill and landed on my rib. symptoms at the time were similar to when I have had fractured ribs, eg. hurts to sneeze, buckling boots hurts, getting up out of chair hurts. whether it was a rib injury or more likely a conne...

Re: Why we shouldn't Nordic ski in the backcountry

I am in no position to comment on the right or wrong way to traverse the trail by human power, but I enjoyed the Rusch video. while the video focused on her bike ride, there are a few second clips showing foot powered racers of all kinds

Re: Skiing squirrel ?

I'm still pretty sure he's pulling a tiny sled. when he gains speed, he just hops in.

Re: Whitefish Mountain Feb 2021

your numbers are unusual I think. you must have one of those fancy, high revving European hearts. I have more of a V8 Diesel. racing Nordic in high school, I remember hitting above 200. 15 years ago when I was a competitive cyclist and would get V02Max tests, my HR was in the 180s.

Re: Whitefish Mountain Feb 2021

I'm simply using the 220-age formula for max HR. so for me, I would be at 169. from monitoring HR doing lots of trail running races over the past year, my highest observed HR was 164. but 2 weeks ago when it was -40 and I was skinning uphill, I saw 167. I'm willing to accept that my max is around 16...

Re: Whitefish Mountain Feb 2021

epic uphill day. it was warm yesterday and fresh snow last night. temps made the snow super grippy with skins so even wit fresh snow, traction was very good. I passed 6 people going up, and set a new PR of 59 mins. my race 2 weeks ago was 72 mins. I have no doubt that if today had been a race, I cou...
