After work yesterday I took a fast skate out the Ellis River Trail for an hour of exercise before the drive home. The chill had started to settle, so the track grew harder and faster as I went.
When I can only get out for a short time and can't keep a consistent training schedule, I prefer to put in a steady effort on flat or rolling terrain rather than claw heroically up to a high point and jet down from it again.
It turns into a dance. With the right musical background and very little editing, a video would have conveyed the rhythm and flow quite well to a viewer. Words just don't do it justice.
Maybe I'll have to invest.
