XC Ski (Skate) 1:42:41 [3] 7.5 mi (13:41 / mi)

Skate Skiing at Forbush. WOW was it slow. So slow that at the bottom of hills, you couldn't use your momentum at all. If you didn't immediately start skating again, you'd just stop. It's like the brakes were on. Could I have used fluoro? Sure, that would have helped, but there's only so much you can do to fight soft trails. As Ann told me as I was heading out: It's going to be a strength workout today. Oh well, it's Nov 22 and my second week skiing in a row. I'll still take it.

Unfortunately, maybe because I was fighting the slow snow so much (?) I ended up with a blister on my instep, so I ended up cutting a couple K off the second lap. Bummer because I was just starting to feel like I was getting a little more glide about halfway through this lap. I did some experimentation with single-sticking on some of the climbs instead of V1. It actually seemed faster to me.
