Reach Peak Fitness on Day 1

The first day Larsen hits the ice, with his supplies at their heaviest and the cold at its most shocking, is the hardest. “We don’t have the luxury of easing into things,” he says. “You go from zero to 100 in your first step. The first month is the heaviest, the temperatures are the coldest, and the conditions are the hardest.”
