We are in the midst of the holiday season which means that it is time to get on the rando race training. I have been out for a few training sessions on my race gear as well as an amazing day of backcountry skiing in Marble. Axel joined me for a recent training session and I think he enjoys skinning more than I do.
Monday can’t get here soon enough as I should be receiving in the mail a pair of the La Sportiva Stratos boots! I’m so excited to get out in these boots a few times this week to test them out before racing in them next weekend at the COSMIC Irwin race. I know skill has something to do with it but I have convinced myself that my descending skills in the race are going to be amazing this year from lighter, stiffer boots.
Meanwhile, I’ll continue training and sleeping. Axel has been allowing me to sleep more which is an amazing treat especially on the Embody by Sealy mattress with Polartec fabric. The new mattress continues to impress Ian and I with its comfort and healthy sleep.
Speaking of sleep…it’s time for me to rest for tomorrow morning’s early training session.
