Boston is out. Triffit nailed it: my heart isn't in to it. Last winter I had a blast racing ski marathons in March and I want to repeat that this spring but I want to be better prepared. Coaching de-fits me, because, paradoxically, I don't get much skiing in. So any extra time that I take from my work/family goes to getting in long ski workouts. My kilometerage is not as good as two winters ago, when I was on sabbatical and an assistant coach, but its way better than last winter. Perhaps surprisingly, I also don't follow any training plan, I just wing it, although most sessions I focus on my technique. Fitness is more epiphenomenal.
