Many athletes and coaches view the week that includes May 1st as the first training week of the new year. It is the point when annual volume from 2007-8 is tallied, and new volume projections, goals, and training plans are launched for 2008-9. To help guide your planning, the US Ski Team created a new Elite Development Pipeline graphic that will soon be included in a tri-fold borchure. To view the brochure, please visit www.ussa.org, click “sports”–“cross country”–“development.”
Have a look at the Education section, too, by clicking: “sports”–“cross country”–“education” for more guidance in planning your training for the new year. Questions about training planning? Post a comment or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
