Question for Today’s Podcast:

How are you? I hope all is well. Love the podcast, and thought you may have an answer for my question.
My CX season is winding down and I am already looking forward to skate skiing. What can I do to help with the transition to my winter sport? I was thinking trail running with/without poles and some upper body strength training. I was then thinking about the connective tissues and stretching may be a better place to start.
Thanks for any direction you can provide.
