Went to South Kettle Moraine, Called the Nordic Trail.
They groomed up the snow from Saturday and it was thin in spots. But was excellent skiing! It was my best ski this year!! I felt good, skis moving well
And it was not freezing cold, just regular cold.
We skied till it was too dark and took a shortcut missing the most hilly section, but arriving back too soon, so we did another loop in the dark.
Now I almost feel bad for switching to the half marathon this Saturday.

Cold Cold Cold.
Need to experiment with different layers of clothing and cold feet issues.
Real slow getting warmed up and they added an extender to the trail that made an even mile loop.
Was gonna quit after an hour, but finally warmed up and went until my toes got too cold.

Next Saturday at the Nokie it’s supposed to be a high of 7...
I’m considering going down to the 1/2 marathon and have till Wednesday to decide.

ahr:70 max:88

Finally I decided to try to swim for 10 minutes after swimming 6 laps and my shoulder didn’t feel too bad, so I thought I’d try. The need for some therapeutic swimming is good even if it’s not in the warm ocean.

Back to Blueberry before heading home to beat the storm. Left about an hour too late, but it was not bad till later and ended up with about 8/9 inches sat Parkside.
This was about 7 degrees, damn I could wait to finish and warm up my toes and hands.
The grooming was fantastic and we had some untouched cord to ski on.
One loop on the skate trails, goal was to do 2,

Went the Al Quale trail and could not figure out the trail since I never really skied there. Ended up doing the Olympic Trail 5k backwards.
Well all I have to say this could not be a more tough trail at 10 degrees. The hills were relentless and since we were going backwards the turns were crazy tough and built skills needed for the Nokie.

After this I said let’s go somewhere more mello and warm up my frozen toes.

XC-Skiing 1:05:35 intensity: (40 @1) + (11:38 @2) + (44:46 @3) + (8:16 @4) + (15 @5) 7.24 mi (9:03 / mi) +101m 8:41 / mi
ahr:128 max:165

Back to the best trail in Marquette, has a volunteer built warming hut with a bathroom and woods stove!!!
Still cold as hell and my warm wax was bad for these conditions, think skiing in sandpaper. But we completed the whole skating loop.

Blueberry Ski Trail, fantastic skiing and conditions. Some debris on the trail, but nothing really. Logging my new skis as shoes so I can keep track of how much they are used.
Marquette Michigan know how to groom trails because they have something missing back home SNOW!!
