100 days until the Olympics! If that isn’t motivating to get out the door and train I don’t know what is!
I am now four days in of a 9 day intensity block. Sten has written me a training plan that goes all the through to the first races of the season in West Yellowstone, MT during Thanksgiving. These next couple of weeks are really important to get in quality training as well as quality recovery. I will be doing a mix of level 3 and level 4 intervals, speed sessions, strength and distance. It is my last intensity block before racing starts.
Yesterday I joined CXC skiers Maria Stuber and Bryan Cook for a skate workout. I had 2 by 20 minutes level 3 and Bryan and Maria did a time trial. I felt great and wished I could have been doing the time trial!
