divIm in Park City, Utah training at the NTG Camp. The National Training Group is a group made up of 25 of the top junior and U23 athletes from around the U.S. The camp started off with a brutal hill climb called Agony Hill. The name says enough. I had a good race and finished fourth place out of the 9 guys here. The rest of the week has been lots of rollerskiing, running, strength training, and games. I have spent some time working one on one with the US coaches, working on technique and training. They have been filming us through out the week and last night we sat down with the coaches and analyzed it. Today we had a Sprint time trial at Soldier Hollow. I qualified 2nd, tying with two other skiers. I came in 15 seconds behind one of the fastest sprinters in the world, Andy Newell. After the qualifier we had 3 heats. It was a really good opportunity for me to battle it out with some of the top guys my age. It was a great chance to see the tactics Andy Newell uses, you can tell he has a ton of experience. He knows when to put in that little bit of extra effort to gap the rest of the field. He seemed to be really really strong pushing over the tops of the hills dropping the rest of the pack. We have four more days of intense training before I head back to Washington for some more training at home. br //divbr /img style=”display:block; margin:0px auto 10px; text-align:center;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 194px; height: 281px;” src=”http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_pZgXW6b1QMk/TBhClt0xKlI/AAAAAAAAAIc/fia2vVf4wzw/s400/agony.jpg” border=”0″ alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5483205762047093330″ /div style=”text-align: center;”Running up Agony Hill/divimg style=”display:block; margin:0px auto 10px; text-align:center;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 289px; height: 400px;” src=”http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_pZgXW6b1QMk/TBhCmJ8ZfZI/AAAAAAAAAIk/IKbRT30oBi0/s400/Agony+6.jpg” border=”0″ alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5483205769595288978″ /div style=”text-align: center;”Scott Patterson, winner/diva onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_pZgXW6b1QMk/TBhClUWn6bI/AAAAAAAAAIU/aq69Shso_R0/s1600/A+Soho+Andy+Newell.jpg”img style=”display:block; margin:0px auto 10px; text-align:center;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 400px; height: 259px;” src=”http://3.bp.blogspot.com/_pZgXW6b1QMk/TBhClUWn6bI/AAAAAAAAAIU/aq69Shso_R0/s400/A+Soho+Andy+Newell.jpg” border=”0″ alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5483205755209771442″ //adiv style=”text-align: center;”Andy Newell/diva onblur=”try {parent.deselectBloggerImageGracefully();} catch(e) {}” href=”http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_pZgXW6b1QMk/TBhClOAvCMI/AAAAAAAAAIM/x-P9ZHQTN58/s1600/A+Soho+1.jpg”img style=”display:block; margin:0px auto 10px; text-align:center;cursor:pointer; cursor:hand;width: 400px; height: 256px;” src=”http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_pZgXW6b1QMk/TBhClOAvCMI/AAAAAAAAAIM/x-P9ZHQTN58/s400/A+Soho+1.jpg” border=”0″ alt=”” id=”BLOGGER_PHOTO_ID_5483205753507350722″ //adiv style=”text-align: center;”Coach’s analyzing my technique/divdiv style=”text-align: center;”br //divdiv class=”blogger-post-footer”img width=’1′ height=’1′ src=’https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/2910103639238326543-4209252212522589481?l=methowolympicdevelopment.blogspot.com’ alt=” //div
