Took my skis out for a trip around the river valley today, about 13 kms but the pace was lousy, nearly 2 hours. I’m really reliant on a good trackset to keep much rhythm, basically I’m going to need some serious practice in the next month before the Birkebeiner shows up. I was hoping to try and get done in a 10 km/hour pace which is about as fast as I can ski in a good track right now. I don’t want to expect to ski as fast as I’m used to doing the birkie, I need to be confident going faster so that I’m not rolling any dice when I get out there and try to get it done in 5.5 hours.
