If you take a look at the map, you'll see that our fastest pace was probably coming down Garnet Street. We were cruising - really. I turned on the GPS thingy and forgot to turn it off until after we drove home!

Really, we had a great last lesson. Eric had many tales to tell about the Birkie. It was a long race but a good time. Our balance drills were much improved. From there we went to work on Plan B techniques for continuing to move when we get tired. First the marathon skate, then the flying herringbone. After that we continued our uphill V1 work. Double poling practice brought us back to the start, at which point the trail lights went out. Here endeth the lesson.

Many thanks to Eric Volk for the great coaching and information. Best wishes to him in skiing and all that other stuff.

On to the rest of the week's workouts.
