It can be very difficult to keep your heart rate down when new to Nordic skiing especially at higher elevations. Hills are difficult and may require slow herringbone or very slow V1. Focus on getting your arms closer to your body (more efficient on hills) and flexing your ankles snd hips into the hill. Requires discipline to slow down until you become more efficient.
I enjoy classic and skate skiing in the winter but am having a hard time keeping my heart rate in the below AeT, especially when I encounter any sort of uphill. I presume this turns into a matter of dialing back my expectations on uphills in particular and transitioning into a herringbone or coach’s skate quickly. Does anyone have any advice on how to keep heart rate down while Nordic skiing on hills?
