In New Hampshire just enough snow has fallen to ski – skate ski, that is.  It has been pleasant to finally be outside on snow and good to start using the muscles this activity demands.  I enjoy setting a pace that I can hold and getting into a rhythm.  It is easy to start too hard, and hard to start and hold an easy pace. Seeing skiers with really solid technique can be humbling – with less overall effort they go faster for longer than I can.  But, of course, there is nothing like skiing in a quiet falling snow, no matter the pace.
