i remember from picabo street's book, the first rule of skiing - when you are finished, be sure to show your ski's name to the camera.

i've xc ski-ed 3 of the past 4 days...it's been called the best aerobic exercise - by best, i am sure they mean most likely to leave you an exhausted heap on the floor. but it makes winter a bit more bearable. today conditions were good. the snow melted a bit earlier in the day, then froze a bit making a very slick surface. i felt for the first time that i was really skiing instead of playing at skiing. the park i was at today and monday is the best nearby park for it. i still avoid hills. i tried a moderate one for me, with not very good results. but on the flats and less drastic hills i felt like i was flying - think i have the stroke down - even did some double poling (quit snickering...)

You get many points for getting out there and doing it, imo.

p.s. I'd avoid the hills, too.

that's exactly my philosophy...regardless of the nature of my workout, i'm guessing it is better than sitting at home playing video games eating potato chips!!!
