Beautiful fall colors, frost on the lawns in the morning, frozen water hoses. Tights and jackets one morning, shorts and T-shirts the next.
The DÃ¼sseldorf World Cup opener is less than one month away. Juniors, elite and masters are making ticket and lodging reservations for camps in Fairbanks, Silver Star and West Yellowstone. Olympic hopefuls are renewing their FIS license and entering the early Continental Cup races. Skis are being stoneground, rockskis are waxed up for the first workouts on two-to-four inches of snow. Volume, strength, speed and intervals are a must. It’s fall for cross country skiers
FasterSkier.com’s readers seem to enjoy training and racing photos from North America and around the World.
Here are some that I took this week of 2005 US World Championship team member James Southam and Anders Haugen. Both live in Anchorage Alaska and are currently doing an altitude camp in Park City, Utah. The photos are from a little interval and speed training.
Coaches and skiers, please send us your training and racing photos along with short camp, workout or race reports. Let people see how cool your club, school, college, area, workout or race really is. That’s how we grow the interest for our sport.
