One trick pony

Quietly sliding through cut corduroy, it all feels familiar. The balance comes back, little stumbles remind me I'm not that good. Working on technique almost makes me forget how bad the lungs are burning, and how much my shoulders and neck hurt. The machine is geared for one thing and this isn't it.

is'nt it great to flail on nordic skis just before you hook a tip in the ungroomed and pile drive your shoulder into the hardpack groomed? I've been there plenty this year. does the word "WHAM" mean anything?
