The theme of today's skijoring outing was "Work the Human".
Now, you might think "work the human" meant I had to do a lot of cross country skiing on our skijor outing. Well, nope... "Work the human" meant I spent a lot of the day grinding my legs & skis in attempts to keep the skijoring machine under control and going safe speeds.

Gallop, sprint, gallop, sprint ... Wheeeee!

The trails were packed & fast everywhere we went. Max & Zorro's view on the conditions: "Eat your Wheaties, strap on those skis and get ready because we are uncorking it all day!"
|Even more difficult - galloping along in a single track. Ride one ski "out of track" the|
whole time to generate some minor "speed control".
|Even uphill was fast today. Luckily, uphill is the one type of terrain that does not "work|
the human". Uphill is easiest - sounds funny, huh? :-)
|Fun shot at our quick "break point" of the outing. In a manner of seconds, Zorro has dug a|
trench engulfing his head & shoulders. But, Max is uninterested in Zorro's trench work as
he is monitoring the terrain and hoping we will run all day!
