Today’s 10km classic was the race I was looking for. I went into this race hoping my body would be able to handle the tough 3.3km course, and it seemed to do just that. I was still a little further down the results list then I would have liked, but 14th is a lot better then last weekends 28th. The plan will be to keep splitting the results in half. Today was a good kicker to get the body back in race mode. I felt like I was actually racing out there and not just out for an incredibly painful shuffle on classic skis!
I am excited for tomorrows skate sprint, looking to move past the quarter final. Stay tuned to Zone 4 for start lists, heat times and final results!
