Allison’s Training: 74 Days to Go

Winter in Colorado means skiing, the more the better. Thankfully, my coach humors me. Today was a skate ski day.

I was supposed to do an hour of tempo work. Turned into about 80 minutes, but not all was tempo. Fair bits of it were spent trying not to cough up a lung. Nothing like a skate ski to may you hypoxic from the start!

Ended up having to add in a slow 5k cross-country ski as well. We had a big storm and the only way I could make it to the house was on skis! Lots of fun, save for forgetting to refuel properly after my first workout.
