We’re now five days into our Silver Star camp, and things are looking great. We’ve already logged four intensity sessions, two strength sessions, one OD and three distance workouts. Recovery is supreme, thanks to our nightly home-cooked meals (Sadie and Erik’s lasagna last night would make any Tuscan span style=”font-style: italic;”nonna /spanjealous…) and ample sleep in our spacious condo.br /br /div style=”text-align: center;”a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_Mg2hQbkHkNs/SvSMsJNC-oI/AAAAAAAAASo/ieobglJ_lt0/s1600-h/Nov5_SilverStar+003.jpg”img style=”margin: 0px auto 10px; display: block; text-align: center; cursor: pointer; width: 320px; height: 240px;” src=”http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_Mg2hQbkHkNs/SvSMsJNC-oI/AAAAAAAAASo/ieobglJ_lt0/s320/Nov5_SilverStar+003.jpg” alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5401096543136840322″ border=”0″ //abr /span style=”font-style: italic;”span style=”font-weight: bold;”(Note the jar of Marshmallow Fluff on the counter – supreme recovery food)br /br //span/spandiv style=”text-align: left;”Conditions at Sovereign Lakes Nordic center have been pretty darn good for this time of year, largely thanks to their efforts every day to keep the trails rolled and turned over to prevent excess death-cookie formation. Today’s workout was threshold training; we skied the World Cup loops for about 30min at a pace that was probably just below our race pace. I’m definitely feeling more comfortable with the altitude today than I was on Tuesday, and already the neuromuscular adaptations to on-snow skiing are becoming apparent.br /br /We’ve been able to get out on our new Fischer boards this week and do some testing, and we’re pretty psyched with Hallsey’s picks for us, especially given their performance in these rather funky snow conditions.br /br /span style=”font-style: italic;”span style=”font-weight: bold;”/span/span/divdiv style=”text-align: left;”div style=”text-align: center;”a onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_Mg2hQbkHkNs/SvSN5O18RKI/AAAAAAAAASw/q1rsGuDXQhY/s1600-h/Nov5_SilverStar+001.jpg”img style=”margin: 0px auto 10px; display: block; text-align: center; cursor: pointer; width: 320px; height: 240px;” src=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_Mg2hQbkHkNs/SvSN5O18RKI/AAAAAAAAASw/q1rsGuDXQhY/s320/Nov5_SilverStar+001.jpg” alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5401097867500471458″ border=”0″ //aspan style=”font-weight: bold;”span style=”font-style: italic;”Yes, we’re a bit biased in our ski brand selection.br /br //span/spandiv style=”text-align: left;”It’s also been great skiing up here with a few other of the country’s top athletes. Brayton and Marshall from XC Oregon have been up here since Monday and Garrott and Matt from CXC Team Vertical Limit are up here as well. Everyone’s looking very strong at this early point in the season and the excitement is palpable as we’re all preparing for the upcoming races in West Yellowstone and accumulating points which may lead to an Olympic berth!
