Roller Skiing (15)
Tour of the farms
Very hot again, 29C at midday so I just rolled along to the dyke to the end without trying too hard then turned around and took the road and cycle path through the Innovalley.
It is insanely hot at the moment so I thought an early start, flat and by the water would be, well if not pleasant, supportable. Well by 9.30am it was far too hot for any sport but luckily I was back.
Spring Training #2
Spring training with Yves and Valentin. Started with some rollerskiing. First V1 without poles but same arm action, trying to plant ski flat and glide for as long as possible.
Rollerski practice session
Practice double polling, freeski, gear 1 and gear 2. I didn't feel like going out too much to be honest due to tiredness but glad I made the effort really.

Rollerski kit shakedown
I've just replaced my rollerski wheels and have new poles after breaking a pole at the end of last season so wanted to check everything was working. It wasn't.
Chambery to Aix les Bains by the cyclepath
A long rollerski on a fantastic autumn day. Leaving from Chambery I took the bike lane all the way to the Petit Port at Aix les Bains then back again.

Picnic ski by the Isere
Lunch skate in the heat before a picnic by the river. Family on bikes.
Second rollerski of the spring. Great news is they've finished all the resurfacing work on the Bois Francais sector, so no more tree roots.
