Rapidly warming conditions, although the trails were in great shape considering. Did the Cobble Mtn loop clockwise, then my verison of the race trails where you hit almost all of them - take 2 across the top halfway, down 4 looping around back to 2, u turn onto 6 back to the stadium, hard right onto T, then R, up the Chute a little bit, then S back to the stadium. About 6.2 km. Just the Cobble loop is about 3.6 km (with none of the side loops).
Did a few passes back and forth in the stadium with no poles - technique seems to be OK.
Reversed Cobble, then took 9 up and over to the meadow, up 7 and back along 8. It was warming up considerably - could feel the suction under my skiis. Continued the reverse on Cobble and in.
Thermometer at the XC center said 40...
