The trail is groomed and it's wonderful to be out again and see the tracks. The groomed snow is still soft and powdery, though, so it's difficult to glide except in a few patches. (It just needs some time and a little warmer weather to settle the base.) I decided my slow pace was a good chance to focus on form, technique and balance. It was also a tough but great cardio workout! I'll work on speed another day. First grooming, bitter cold but sunny, AND a port-a-potty! Oh, happy day!
