Going the Distance With Your Nordic Skiing

Nordic skiing is a great sport for non-athletes and truly a life-long activity that you don’t have to give up as you get older. Although it provides a total workout, it doesn’t put much strain on joints and muscles. And in the endurance events, middle-agers can do quite well. Our topic today is training for distance races, including our famous Tour of Anchorage, not because you ever expect to win, but because you want to go the distance and share a big accomplishment with many friends and neighbors.
