Mid February is pretty late for my year’s debut on the skis, but that’s what it was tonight. I have been putting this off for over a week now and almost wish that I had put it off for longer. I did 12km at a snail-like 5:24/km. I believe the slothenly pace was partly due to incorrect wax choice and technique and my lack of skiing technique. After arriving home I considered going for a run because I found the 63 minutes none too taxing. I decided to take a sauna instead.
