While I was feeling stiff from the US Ski-O Champs, I reasoned that an easy run might improve my recovery. Pain alone was also an insufficient reason to break with my training. Once I started moving, I felt better. I ran in tights, long sleeve polypro, short sleeve polypro, and gloves. I felt overdressed; the temperature was 3 C.
Red long course. I was moving at my top cross country speed, i.e. very slowly, though the experience was pleasant. My technique also had improved significantly over Saturday's event. The advantage of moving slowly is that you get to log more hours of training.
Blue middle distance at the US Ski-O champs. Good fun; Mike, the owner of the facility where the event was held, graciously loaned me some poles when it turned out those I had rented from REI were so short that they were the correct size for Lori.
