Roller Skiing (16)
Classic rollerskiing before the snow
The forecast was for rain so I was happy to see it was still dry at 9am so I headed to the dyke cycle path with my classic skis as I hadn't done this since the Semnoz.
Last afterwork before winter time
This was going to be the last afterwork before we are plunged into winter time. I was a bit late starting (18.
Back to climbing on classic skis.
Bois Francais Classic Rollerski
Classic rollerski drills on the Isere tow path. Speed a bit better compared to last summer, 29 minutes for the return trip as opposed to 31 minutes last year. Got into a good rythm on the way back.
I was using my old flexi skating boots for classic but the inner lining tore and they were getting pretty uncomfortable so I got a pair of Atomic Pro CS boots.
I haven't had time to get out much the last few days so decided to roll a bit afterwork. Headwind going to Grenoble that seemed to drop for the return trip.
Stopping near a stagnant drainage ditch by the Domene municipal dump was sub optimal. I was immediately attacked by wave after wave of tiger mosquitoes.
Le Japin - la Pérérée
The ski clubs use the Murianette road for training - but they have a mini bus to collection them at le Pinet. I decided to give it a go descending on foot.
Dog Day Afternoon
Just rolled around concentrating on technique - planting forwards, getting body stacked over skis, flexion/extension. All that jazz.
GPS didn't work for part of the trip so missed about 3km. Going quiet well and better style after a lesson with Valentin from the Ecole de Porte.
