Westwood Nordic

Another blizzard so I went up to the Westwood Nordic Area (Westwood Golf Course...) and had a couple of fun hours on the boards... Its not that its hard, its just not as easy as it looks... Especially if you start going downhill. I am a reasonably good downhill skier, but without the heel being attached, light boots, no edges, its totally different from trying to control downhill skiis.

Back home, another hour and a half chasing the platinum guy on the Computrainer. He was set to 300 watts and staying in the draft zone (2-10 meters) is hard... And if you get out it is hard to get back in. So lots of micro bursts of power, which push the intensity factor up... Its a reasonably good race practice drill.
