Roller Skiing (10)
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.
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.
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.
Picnic ski by the Isere
Lunch skate in the heat before a picnic by the river. Family on bikes.
From the Bois de Batie car park follow the cycle trail to towards Chambery for 500m under the bridge.
