Opted for x-training. Not a good choice to go skating today. There was a canoeing race, so the first (and the last) 2k were totally jammed - impossible to skate, had to "walk" through the crowd. Then it was better, but as usually when it is such a nice weekend day, it was crowded and there was also the whole bunch of idiots who don't care about safety and behave like if they were the only ones on the route. So had to stop very often and be really alert all the time and couldn't just relax and enjoy skating.
Whenever it was possible I focused on the balance trying to glide as long as possible. Seems I'm improving. Wonder, whether it will be a transferable skill to xc-skiing.
