Today is a nice day on the Swedish West Coast with minus 4-6 degrees Celsius. The longing for a trip with my long-distance skates became too great so I had to test. After putting the skates on my old leather Telemark boots, I stood up on wobbly legs. It was probably 4 ~ 5 seasons since I went long-distance skating.
The first staggering skates felt unsafe, but after a while the skating flowed well.
My right leg feels perfectly OK, while my left leg is a bit behind in rehabilitation. It is in the right part of the thigh muscle that needs to be trained more. After the ride, it felt much like after the cross country tour, ie as after training at the gym. If the weather continue to be nice, it will hopefully be a trip on a much larger lake tomorrow.
