I am moving up.
This time was a 15k Freestyle, which means everyone skates. Oddly enough I saw two people using classic style. Guessing they signed up for the series and don’t have skate skies. Managed to get 7th of 12 in my age group this week. I am moving up. Aerobic work is starting to make a difference.
No matter what sport you want to improve at, train for the specifics of that sport. In that vein I better do more for my arms. The skinny biker's arms are not cutting it. I did not spend the fall prepping my arms for all the polling. There is a good reason you see avid skiers double polling on the road long before the snow arrives. My arms are not contributing enough. They are pretty much along for the ride.
