Last night was our first time trail of the summer – an individaul start, self timed, approximately 1k double pole up lower afton rd. It was a nice night, and we had a bit of a tail wind (I seem to remember head winds most times), and this lead to some fast times, with 6 people setting new personal bests even though it is early in the season. We had a big group of skiers participating (including Caitlin Compton).br /br /Results:br /Nate 2:39!br /John S 2:47*br /Andy 2:51!br /Derek 2:58*br /Caitlin 3:01*br /Brent 3:05br /Mark 3:06!br /Dave 3:10!br /Jojo 3:11*br /Kevin 3:13br /Paul 3:20*br /Pete 3:20br /Cheryl 3:21br /Angie 3:25!br /Michele 3:31br /Margie 3:43br /Allie 3:45*br /Nichole 3:59*br /Mel 4:00!br /Katy 4:00*br /Sara 4:04*br /(! = personal best time, * = first time on course)br /br /After the time trial we went up into the neighborhoods and worked on double pole kick technique, with some pick-ups thrown in.br /br /Even today my throught is still a bit scratchy from breathing hard during the TT – maybe that’s because my body is not used to 1k sprints… got to love the taste of blood in your mouth at the end of a sprint.div class=”blogger-post-footer”img width=’1′ height=’1′ src=’https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/1572647974447867713-7537572662164440006?l=vakavaraceteam.blogspot.com’ alt=” //div
