I recently came back to the ice and my condition is pants.
From my skate camp 5 years ago I remember that it is possible to skate and not feel the exhaustion ON THE ICE, even if I could hardly WALK off the ice.
(I think that is part of the skating addiction ;-) )
But I wonder how wise it is to do that now? I skated yesterday at night for 1.5h - including going there by bike and back and some warm-up, that was more than 2 hours exercise at once and today I am really exhausted, I feel every muscle and if I use them they tremble.
Originally I had thought to go back to the ice next morning for public session next week (after the same work-out like yesterday the night before - this week I had no time to do so).
But would that be wise or would it be wiser to wait a day to give the body more time to rest?
The season here stops at the end of March and I am very eager (maybe overeager) to get as much skating as possible done in that time period and might not always be sensible.
