XC SKIING (Säfsen) 15:00 [3]

We were both quite scared about skiing in the morning and it showed in our confidence... We started off OK on the first track, but as the tracks began to weave and we weren't that great at manovering the skiis we were getting rubbish.

Then came the downhill part. Lizzie decided to go fast ahead of me and then lost control and fell, smashed her chest, blacked out twice while I fell to avoid hitting her, and kept her in consciousness for a bit. After about 10mins on the floor in the freezing cold we decided to walk back. Horror on VSOK faces when we told them. and.... not even a bruise to show for it - although possible cracked ribs! Woohoo! Skiing is FUN!

OTHER 25:00 [3] 2.0 km (12:30 / km)

Walked back in the snow - bloody hard work keeping on going as Lizzie wasn't with it and skiis are stupid to carry in your hands...


More back and legs after the pain started to flow after the XC


Don't go too fast on the ice.
Säfsen Hotel has amazing showers.
Red Bull is awesome for 3am driving.
