So due to the cold forecast NTG Geilo has decided not to go to Gaalaa, a little disappointing as i had proved last week that my skate sprinting is getting good and i looked forward to testing myself in a competition now.
The cold temperatures are still forecast until friday next week and even then it is not letting up much. By then we could be reaching highs in the middle of the day of -12 C.
Fortunately although i wont race this weekend it is only one week to wait. On sunday i am off to join up with the British Nordic Ski Team for a week. All of British skiings stars will be around and i look forward to meeting up with the team again. Thursday next week we will travel to idre, Sweden where we will race saturday, sunday. Definitely looking forward to some laddish behaviour from Rogger Riller ( http://ayoungxcskier.blogspot.com/2010/04/roger-riller.html ) and other going ons that are only found on the British team.
For now though i sit inside mainly all day as it is so damn cold! today i braved the elements for a 2 hour classic ski, and short trip to the shops but biking home was fiercely cold. Tomorrow is yet again meant to be another sub -20 day, so intervals on the spinning bikes are planned! im not sure if thats good or bad! Sweating you guts out and seemingly no results as you stay stationary... Also a gym session awaits tonight, i just hope someone has left the heaters on in there!
I also must congratulate Malcolm Cooper on his winning of "the Golden Boot". It seems there is more snow in the North east of scotland the anywhere else at the moment... Clash/lecht olympic bid soon?
