ski-swim double-feature wednesday!

Yesterday was a nice flashback to about 3-4 years ago when we used to meet up before swim practice to either run or swim for an hour, depending on the season.
Yesterday, Morten and I headed out from Sognsvann on our skiis and went to Ullevålseter. It`s only a 5.3 km trip, but it is almost completely uphill. The advantage is the downhills on the way back ;-)
It`s really cool, skiing at night. It`s like a whole new world. Only the small areas directly under the lamps are visible, except for the occasional skier wearing a headlamp. And it seems to be less noisy too.
Anyway, we made it up in 35 minutes, and made it back down in about 25. Perfect timing.
At 8:30 pm we were in the pool for 45 minutes.
Hopefully this will become a regular Wednesday routine.
And hopefully, more people from the club will join us before swim practice, just like we used to do in the old days :)
Geeez, I`m old.
