Inline along the Isere
Decided to inline today as it was easier to get the skates out. Legs a bit tired an achy at the start but ok on the return - must be the boots and position.
First alpine ski of 2022
First alpine ski of this season. Better than expected given the recent high altitude rain with soft snow and very little ice.
Col de la Croix de Peccata, Mont Mezenc, Massif Central, France
DescriptionFrom Yssingeaux (there is a free autoroute from Lyon - the N88) you climb 400 meters over 16km but there are some sections of 8%.
Classic rollerskiing on the twopath
Basically working on diagonal stride rhythm and weight transfer and trying to lengthen glide.
Very slow wheels
Rollerski with slow wheels, quite good for the arms and technique but managed to fall despite the wheels being safer, doh! Took over an hour to do the return trip - 5m/km.
Usual 4x8 min intervals. Timed it better to finish the intervals on the climb and a part of the descent.
St Jean and Belledonne Intervals
First intervals for a long time. I decided to try 4x8. First set was hard but after ok but need a bit of a slope to get the HR up.
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.
Paradise loop in the heat
Not as quick as May due to the heat, VAM of 900, not bad. The climb has quite a bit of shade, so not bad on a hot day.
xSkating in the woods
I wanted to skate home from work. Around 15km along the tow path which seemed to be the only valid route and then only possible with cross skates as 6km is on gravel tracks.
