Whey-hey! The cross country skiing season has started in Iceland and despite being rubbish and unable to stop or turn, I am out every night on the forest trails!
I know that Grete Weitz (prob'ly wrong spelling) incorporated X-country skiing into her London Marathon training programme but how? At the moment I'm following the Runners World 10k training programme (the 35 to 45 minute one on this website) and doing X-country skiing on top of it. Which is making me very fit, but knackered, with too many niggling aches and pains for my liking.
Can I replace any of my running sessions (such as '5-7 miles steady') with X-country skiing - and if so, how far or for how long should I ski for?
