I took up cross country skiing this winter and I am sad to see the snow sublimating and melting. The woods are beautiful in Minnesota. I really enjoy living here.
This is one of the first times that my quads have been in such good shape at the end of the winter. It was a great winter climate for skiing this year, we had good snow for months. But now it's all going away.
Classic cross country skiing is a great workout for the whole body, but especially the thighs and it's low impact as well. I've only gone a half dozen times, but I think I figured out how to sprint on skis this last time. But I also have to remember to pace myself on a long course.
