Training this time of year is bitter sweet… You are motivated to ski faster than ever but tired from training all summer. The weather can suck for running/rollerskiing but there’s not enough snow to ski. Athletes start traveling to get on snow and most everyone else tries to maintain fitness waiting for the white stuff or at least the sun to come out.

Though it might sound weird two weeks in europe before a race can be bad if you’ve been doing this game for over a decade. I’m going to chance it this year and as a result I find myself anxiously hoping to back country ski or skate or jump soon but in the meantime killing time and making my workouts by improv as illustrated below:
