We spent the week staying in the Black’s yard (a family that allows us to use their house while we are there). Trout Lake has some of the best rollerskiing in the world, with endless perfect roads and no traffic, not to mention an amazing view of Mt. Adams. We spent the week doing various rollerski workouts, strength, bounding, and lots of technique work. It is a great opportunity for us to catch up with other skiers from around our region and then knock heads with them at the end of the week in a time trial up a steep road out of the valley. The camp was great this year, there was a good group of very elite athletes for me to ski and work with. It is also always nice to catch up with some other coaches as well, get some of their ideas on technique and training. The last workout of the camp everyone climbs Adams, either half way or to the top. My IT band has been bothering me for the past week so I decided to play it safe and do a long rollerski workout instead. The long rollerski workout turned into an endless 5 and a half hour, 54 mile ski through the mountains. This is the longest I have ever rollerskied! A nice workout, but a very long time to be on rollerskis. We are now spending this week recovering from the hard efforts and great training from last /img src=”file:///Users/Erik/Desktop/l_f99aff3942a98edc2177abc07e6f95ea.jpg” alt=”” /div class=”blogger-post-footer”img width=’1′ height=’1′ src=’’ alt=” //div
