Going out the backdoor and doing a little of this...
...a few times around the pond. Then maybe a trip around the fields to the back woods.
All you need are skis and snow.
Did I mention winter has forsaken us this year?
Good thing I have photographs to remind me of what winter is supposed to look like, this time of year, around the old farmhouse.

Cross country skiing is a great way to get your heartbeat up, enjoy the sunshine and take in some fresh air during the winter months. If you're a runner and you can't get out to run, try changing up your routine with a little skiing. You'll be hooked in no time. You don't need to live in the country, although I admit, it sure is handy. There are lots of groomed trails around, provided you live in an area where there's snow. Somewhere, obviously, far from where I live.
Last week Dandy, from Spontaneous Clapping was concerned about being able to rent skates at the pond. Don't worry. We have a supply of extra skates, lots of skis, and, if you're so inclined, hockey equipment. What did you expect, this is Canada, eh!
Be well friends!
