Skidder Loop Time Trial

O.k. Getting back into working out, not too much too soon, though. Today was a scaled CFE workout; an uphill time trial. We used the Skidder Loop at MTU Trails (map:JPG.) After a quick warmup scooping the driveway, we headed over to the trails. The downhill leg was fun to ski. Then we stopped at the bottom and prepared for the grind uphill.

It was almost all uphill back to the Core Loop. After the other day I was worried but determined to do the whole thing. With faster snow conditions it turned out to be quite do-able; not quite as difficult as a 10-minute metcon. That's how I approached it - steady rate, pause every once in a while to catch my breath and back into it. Very cool.

What I learned: at least in V1 uphill, I may do better with my hips lower down. Sort of a Groucho Marx approach to skiing. ;^=)

My phone has a gizmo with a new feature; I can upload a GPS tracked workout. I sent it to my email address so I could copy it to here. There's lots of info, a photo of us, even a link to a map of our exploit. Let's hope it works! Here goes...
