Roller Skiing (86)
Head of Gold Park
Second trip to the Tete d'Or park. Not many people on a Thursday afternoon, just a few nasty dags who don't like rollerskiers but are ok with bikes and runners.
Parc de la Tête d'Or, Lyon, France
I wanted to check out Lyon's Golden Head park to see what the surface is like for rollerskiing.
Loop via the dykes
Took it relatively easy. HRM was reading below 140 for most of the way but it was my optical monitor so not sure about the accuracy. A bit hard after the hours. 4m17 per km.
Supposed to be an easy session but ended up a lot in zone 3/4 anyway.
Stability and balance exercises on classic skis
Spent an hour doing some classic ski diagonal stride balance and stability exercises. The principal aim is to be balanced on the front of the kick ski (front wheel) at the end of the push phase.
Got my classic rollerskis out for a change and went on a long but thankfully shady and early ski.
I don't know why I was so slow today. 29 minutes each way. Out of practice and tired arms I guess. First rollerski of the year anyway.
Quick Classic Ski
A quick rollerski to work mainly on diagonal technique.
Lunch Skating in Meylan
A lunch skate, I'd wanted to do a couple of climbs up the Chartreux hill but broke the tip of my pole on the hard tarmac, will have to see about repairing it now.
2m33 for the Chartreux climb compared to 2m49 last time on classic RS and 1m46 on skate skis. Still that's 50% slower on classic so room for some improvement.
