06.02.2023 – It was my longest distance ever on cross-country skis. It was a challenge for me, not from an endurance perspective but more from a muscular one. Because the classic style is slower than the skating style, it is more demanding.
The key is, as always, a strong reason why, motivation, a variety of landscapes, and to take step-by-step, or translated to the cross-country ski alphabet, glide-by-glide.
There is usually always something that hurts after a while. However, without certain pain, the challenge wouldn’t be the same.
The emotions after the execution are usually redemptive and satisfying. And so it was this time.
