Does anyone here XC ski?

I do in the winter. Although the last few have produced very poor conditions for regular skiing.

 

I don't have rollers for warm-weather training and instead ride my bike and run.

I hurt my foot a couple of months ago and have been unable to exercise. I need to motivate myself to get back on track. Otherwise I'll be posting soon about "how to lose those 5 pounds".

Bummer on the foot. How hurt is hurt? Can you do pool running?

It's been two weeks since my foot has healed enough for me exercise again. I've just been revving about getting back into it. I'll start today in an about an hour with push ups, sit ups and squats. Then do weights in a couple of days and go for a run.

Body weight squats? A good exercise and you can walk afterwards. I tried doing squats with weights but I found the muscle soreness afterwards intolerable.

 

I swam today, a little bit: 14 lengths of a 50m pool. Outdoors in the Californian sunshine.
