Now that I live in a city with consistent snow and few hills, I'm getting back into cross-country skiing (classic style) again. I'm out of shape for this! Did 3k on a groomed trail this morning and was stopping every 5 minutes towards the end. Relearning things like how to get up after falling is taking it's time, as the rusty skills creak their way upwards from the archives. I've only been once since a car accident 13 years ago - at that time my damaged knees let me know that they weren't up to sustaining a crouch on the downhills and that, plus lack of snow, put an end to the skiing for years.
Now I'm seeing snow as a good thing. Anyone else doing this?
