It was a lovely day for x-c skiing in Parc National du Bic.
Sunny, no wind, and I was actually feeling quite robust, as my technique has improved and my muscles are stronger. Yikes, x-c skiing is good (and challenging) exercise, even as I thought very long walks and going to the gym would suffice as preparation. Ha! Next year, I’ll be doing a lot more.
Obviously, I need to step up my workouts back in NC as well as keep it up here, but adding recovery days, too.
The snow is lovely at the moment, and as long as I can stay in good x-c technique mode, I glide and kick quite decently, without the slipping and shoulder strains from suddenly having to grasp my ski poles.
