Elm Creek Manmade Loop Skate Workout Long 7:48 AM; Elm Creek Park Reserve
1.1 °C; Cloudy Picked first-born Colin up at airport, scraped and brushed skis and headed to lake Elmo. About 1.9 km open now. Pretty quiet, the Greggs and Matt Liebsch were out. Chatted a little with Brian, asked him about his marathon. He said that unlike in foot marathons, it's nice to not be sore after ski races. Amen to that! Tried to keep my effort as close to L1 as I could but it's hard with the hills. Also tried to focus on my V2 and posture in general. When Matt and Caitlin passed me I could glean a bit from the pros. Got pretty tired towards the end but finished my 16 laps. 1st and last lap were no poles, one mostly double poling lap somewhere in the middle. Good workout.
