The Club!
This is the first issue of the 2005 season’s subscription service covering in-depth, modern and interesting issues in the sport of Cross-Country. For non-subscribers, this is a great time to join. You're subscription helps keep going, and you get in-depth articles you can't find anywhere else.

The May 2005 issue
This month we include two articles:

1. Endurance training that gives results — part 2
– Second part of a summary from a new book on Endurance Training written by the Norwegian Olympic Committee — Top Performance Group. This group coordinates top-level endurance training for several sports in Norway, and has developed an enormous data base of successful training examples as well as knowledge of the theory behind this training.

2. Effect of high intensity endurance training in elderly
– This is a research article from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology. The intent of this research project was to determine whether high intensity endurance training increased max VO2 in an older adult population. We have had recent discussions with some of our subscribers regarding this exact topic, and feel that more of you would benefit from reading the result of the research.

Please enjoy and give us comments, as well as suggestion for subjects you would like us to cover in the future.

US Ski Team coach Trond Nystad has been reading the in-depth articles in our monthly Club newsletter. We recently asked him if these articles were helpful to him and if he thought the information was useful to others in the ski community.

“I think the articles you guys provide in the Club Subscription Service are very interesting and of very high quality. I always look forward to receiving the newsletters as it keeps me and my staff up to date and exposed to a lot of new and old ideas. I am glad that you guys are doing this as it is a great service and pretty much the only way to get access to a wide variety of articles and topics from around the world. Every serious coach and racer should in my mind be reading the stuff you guys write. Lots of great information for parents as well.

“I'll be happy to contribute stuff after the season is over.”

Trond Nystad, US National Team Head coach
