divI stopped by ‘The Club’ on friday and Kiera asked me when I would be back to stay for a while and hang out with her. What do I do when I am not at ‘The Club’?’The Club’ re-opened for the fall this week after the bi-annual two week closure for in-service. This week, all of my teammates are in town for our monthly training camp. The harder training of camp makes it so that I have only been able to stop by ‘The Club’ for a few minutes to say hello before taking off to meet my team for afternoon training./divdivbr //divdivWhen I am not at ‘The Club’ I am usually: running, biking, roller skiing or strength training. I am a ski racer and in order to be fast and improve I must train a lot. Sometimes, I work out 2-3 times a day and it takes all day. These are my hard days, on my easier days I may only train once or not at all and these are the days I am usually at ‘The Club.’/divdivbr /a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_M9ps8F85nS0/Sq181S6r7xI/AAAAAAAAAVY/edBi7u-owBI/s1600-h/absoluteStrength+005.JPG”/a/divdiva onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_M9ps8F85nS0/Sq181S6r7xI/AAAAAAAAAVY/edBi7u-owBI/s1600-h/absoluteStrength+005.JPG” style=”text-decoration: none;”img style=”text-align: left;display: block; margin-top: 0px; margin-right: auto; margin-bottom: 10px; margin-left: auto; cursor: pointer; width: 300px; height: 400px; ” src=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_M9ps8F85nS0/Sq181S6r7xI/AAAAAAAAAVY/edBi7u-owBI/s400/absoluteStrength+005.JPG” border=”0″ alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5381094384830508818″ //adiv style=”text-align: center;”iMy teammate Gus doing a strenth workout with 90lbs added to his waist. /i/div/divdivbr //divdivThat is the same weight or more that many of the kids at ‘The Club.’ Maybe I will try to do a pull up with you on my back next time we are at ‘The Club.’br //divdiva onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_M9ps8F85nS0/Sq180EI9bEI/AAAAAAAAAVI/zBklpUnkF-8/s1600-h/sept+camp+015.JPG” style=”text-decoration: none;”span class=”Apple-style-span” style=”color:#000000;”br //spanimg style=”text-align: left;display: block; margin-top: 0px; margin-right: auto; margin-bottom: 10px; margin-left: auto; cursor: pointer; width: 400px; height: 300px; ” src=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_M9ps8F85nS0/Sq180EI9bEI/AAAAAAAAAVI/zBklpUnkF-8/s400/sept+camp+015.JPG” border=”0″ alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5381094363683974210″ //adiv style=”text-align: center;”iWaxing skis in September?/i/divdiv style=”text-align: center;”ibr //i/divdiv style=”text-align: left;”Skis are an important part of ski racing. I have over 10 pairs of skis. Athletes and coaches spend a lot of time on their skis. It is not unheard of for a pair of skis to have over $250 of wax put into them for a single race. Right now I am only working on my skis so that I can flex them and see how them compare to the new 2010 Salomon skis./divbr /a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_M9ps8F85nS0/Sq180-pxQdI/AAAAAAAAAVQ/d1QYMQjCT2s/s1600-h/sept+camp+011.JPG”/a/divdiva onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_M9ps8F85nS0/Sq180-pxQdI/AAAAAAAAAVQ/d1QYMQjCT2s/s1600-h/sept+camp+011.JPG” style=”text-decoration: none;”img style=”text-align: left;display: block; margin-top: 0px; margin-right: auto; margin-bottom: 10px; margin-left: auto; cursor: pointer; width: 400px; height: 300px; ” src=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_M9ps8F85nS0/Sq180-pxQdI/AAAAAAAAAVQ/d1QYMQjCT2s/s400/sept+camp+011.JPG” border=”0″ alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5381094379390845394″ //adiv style=”text-align: center;”iKevin Johnson of Salomon USA flex testing skis/i/divdiv style=”text-align: left;”ibr //i/divdiv style=”text-align: left;”I am looking forward to being back at ‘The Club’ this fall.
