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.
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.
Inline skate along the Isere
Back on my inline skates for balance, felt better than last year but can still feel every spec of gravel !!!
Quick Classic Ski
A quick rollerski to work mainly on diagonal technique.
A short Saturday morning ski tour with Valerie, I was on classic skis and Valerie on skating. Very windy and we had to be careful on the way back with the amount of junk on the roads.
Classic style by the Isere
A return to classic style after a few weeks of skating. Working on weight transfer for both kick double pole (pas d'un) and diagonal stride (alternatif) techniques. 4m49/km which is not too bad.
Journée de la mobilté douce
The annual "leave your car at home" event. To amuse the crowds (which it did) I went by rollerski/skating to work.
Classic by the river
A little tour on classic rollerskis to move the legs a bit. Not too quick, balance a bit better after some recent practice but more work to do.
Classic skiing with the Norwegian maestro
Skied with Stein from Norway who really knows what he is doing and can easily maintain 3min/km on classic, a lot faster than me.
Testing slow wheels
Testing some Decathlon slow wheels, boy are they sloooowwww. Probably quite good for training and exercises as they don't tend to run away but you need a lot of effort to get them moving.
