Switching it up today. Left the rifle at home and raced the Cross Country Middle Distance, a 10km Classic race. I would end up in fifth place. Again I struggled a little in the opening laps to get on the pace but was contending towards the end of the race. It was good to switch it up and not be racing a biathlon (there are still two more Biathlon races here in Finland next week). I will sit out of tomorrow’s Sprint race and rest for the two remaining Biathlon. Cheering for teammates Chris and Brittany in their Sprint races.
