A Few Steps Backwards

weston ski track

The rain and warmer weather of the past week killed off the little patch of snow we had at Weston.  So I was back on rollerskis today, which feels oh so wrong this late in December.  It’s starting to feel like the climate has really changed and it might be time to move further north or to take up water skiing.

There is skiable snow a few hours away in New Hampshire but the Christmas schedule doesn’t allow me to disappear for a day to get up there.  So I’ve filled the down time in the usual manner:  ercolina, core strength workouts, hillbounding, running, rollerskiing…and something new for me, rest.

I plan to hit this season fresh and recovered — though I’ve been on the edge of overtraining, under recovering and too many other committments — which means I’ve been tring to sleep more, stretch more and make sure I’m ready to go.
