After level 4 ski walking intervals at Marquette Mountain this past Wednesday Dan and I drove to my parent’s house in Minnesota. I spent the next 4 days training twice a day in 90 degree heat but it was AWESOME. Summer in Marquette so far has been pretty cool so it was a nice change. Last week was a big volume week and the training around my parent’s house is great with tons of options for rollerskiing, running and biking.
Here is what last week’s training looked like-
Tueaday- am- run and strength pm- distance skate rollerski
Wednesday- am- ski walking and bounding L4 intervals pm-drive to MN
Thursday- am-distance classic rollerski pm-distance skate rollerski
Friday- am-distance skate rollerski pm-distance road bike
Saturday- am- L4 running intervals at Afton State Park pm-distance classic rollerski
Sunday- am-over distance classic rollerski
Total hours for the Week- 18:45
This week is a medium hour week (between 14 and 16 hours) with a level 3 interval session on Wednesday and a 3km running time trial on Saturday with the NMU cross country running team and the ski team.
Its hard to believe that I am now in the 5th month of training for the 2009/2010 season. Things are going well. I feel strong and fit and I am having FUN.
