All our snow is gone now, I think this is the start of Spring so I will see my skis again in November. Sunday I skied on ice-gravel and pinecones, and I was so sad since I hadn’t skied as much as I wanted this year. Yesterday I went paddling on the river. The ice is still stuck to the sides and there is not much floating around so it is mostly safe. I also got some technical tips from the veterans, one of which was “don’t work so hard”. I have never heard that in an athletic context.
At any rate, I am happy there was no gap between skiing and paddling, and looking forward to a summer season on the river. There are still a few weeks before anything gets green and there is dirt and puddles everywhere, but at least it is sunny. 🙂
