Today I was on my way to work and the radio finally confirmed what I’ve been feeling for the past 4 months – this has been Chicago’s coldest winter EVER. I prefer outdoor running on the pavement, but draw the line to icy sidewalks and below 0 temps. As winter drags on, my anxiety about not training for the upcoming Tough Mudder becomes realistic.
That is until I discovered cross country skiing! I’ve been on skis since the time I could walk, but was never been tempted by the energy and endurance cross country skiing demands. This past weekend I learned that this sport is all about endurance, consistency and a little coordination – making it a great Tough Mudder workout!

I am big downhiller but never tried cross country — it’s something I think I’d love just never tried.
You definitely should! Especially if you’re like me and trapped in a cold climate 🙂
There is such a beauty to x-country. I haven’t built a strong skill with it. I do love to pull out my snowshoes and head down the trail. Thanks for the follow.
