September 2007 Cxc Team Training Camp Recap

FasterSkierOctober 1, 2007

The CXC Team kicked-off their September training camp with a four day camping excursion in the scenic Porcupine Mountains State Park of Upper Peninsula, Michigan. Athletes embraced the wilderness as they settled into their rustic accommodations along the shoreline of Lake Superior.

The Porcupine Mountains, or Porkies as they are fondly referred to, offered picturesque rollerskiing and running terrain for the CXC Team. The first full day of training in the state park entailed a morning ski-walking interval session up the local alpine hill, followed by an afternoon specific strength workout on the hilly terrain of highway M107. The following day included a morning distance run in the pouring rain, and an afternoon low-key classic rollerski. Frequent post-workout dips in the chilly Lake Superior waters were necessary for recovery, followed by evenings spent around the campfire roasting marshmallows.
