Practice today New Practice Schedule Thursday-Sat
Dec 112017

I just got a phone call to confirm we have a practice slot at Elm Creek Tuesday 2:45-4:45. This will be our first classic ski day. We do not have busing to Elm Creek, but will have to carpool to get down there. Bring your skis and boots home with you and have your car packed so you can leave right after school and we can get down there as soon as possible. I will be at the wax room at 2:10 to open it if you need to grab stuff quickly before you leave for Elm Creek.  Julie will be down there with kick wax to put on and will help everyone get going.

The workout is as follows. Varsity skiers. 15-20 minute warm up, get comfortable again on classic skis, meet for some no pole striding drills. Then ski 15-20 minutes, followed by 10X1 minute intervals with approx 2 minutes active recovery. Start 5 of the intervals at the bottom of the donut to ensure a good climb in the 1 minute interval. The other 5 can be predominately double pole. Intensity is high for the intervals, 1500 pace. Cool down 30 minutes.

First year skiers meet for classic drills and learn to classic ski. Striding with and without poles, double pole, and double pole kick. Focus on weight transfer and gliding on a flat ski. Finish with a continuous ski in groups to get used to classic skiing.
