Tony Percha and I were out at Indian Springs Metropark for a little skate rollerski. We did a Long Slow Distance ski - 2 hours at between 60% and 70% of our max heart rate. LSD sessions enhance your body's capacity to deliver oxygen to your muscles and your body's ability to burn fat as a source of energy. Additionally, LSD running teaches your body to store more energy as glycogen in your muscles. Try doing this workout without feeds - only water. Indian Springs is a good place for LSD. After the initial long downhill, the 8 mile trail is pretty flat.

Unfortunately the Dec. 12th Lakes of the North Freestyle race has been cancelled. Not knowing if the health order would be extended after Dec 8th and the need to purchase materials prior to that date are the main decision drivers.
