The Norwegian women’s team has their first camp for the season in Mysen on May 11-13. On the agenda is goal setting, planning, a sprint rollerski race and an interval session at what might become Norway’s first ever Formula-1 racetrack.
The meetings at the camp are important for the Olympic season.
– We might adjust the training as we go along, but are now laying out rules and goals, says the coach Svein Tore Samdal.
– The training for the 2006 season will roughly be done as last season. No big changes, but some adjustments. The peak is geared 100% towards the Olympics. This might involve that most of the skiers has a cynical prioritizing of the World Cup this season. It might be that we skip certain races in order to secure training periods toward the Olympics, adds Samdal
The camp agenda:
AM – travel
PM – Easy distance run and team meeting
08.15 – 9.30 — Meeting
09.45 – 11.30 — Classic rollerski including speed
12.45 – 14.30 — Optional climbing tower, rafting or off
18.00 – Public sprint rollerski race downtown with prolog and heats. Local talents are invited.
09.00 – Rollerski freestyle at the town’s go-cart track, which soon might become Norway’s first ever Formula-1 racetrack. Lap times will be recorded and used to evaluate the current shape of each skier. The athletes will get a chance to try the track in go-carts afterwards.
