XCFeedsSpring Training Begins!

This past week I started into what Scott calls the “transition period” – a two to three week block of mixed training before the real “base period” begins in May. Most of the training is low intensity, high volume with an emphasis on vertical. Hmm…what could I possibly do in the Methow, in the springtime, to get such aspects into my training?


Oh yeah, we had a great winter. The pass isn’t even halfway open yet and there’s five feet of snow only six miles from my house. The gate on the highway is closed at Silver Star Creek but from there you can go into Silver Star basin, onto Delancey Ridge, into Leap Creek…endless possibilities. Yesterday Alison and I skinned into Silver Star to check out the high country. T-shirts the whole way, and fantastic corn skiing.

My favorite ladies…kissing each other.

In other news, my former teammates Sadie and Erik Bjornsen have BOTH been nominated to the 2011/12 US Ski Team! Sadie after a stellar season was nominated to the B Team, and Erik’s performance at the US Nationals Classic Sprint this year (4th) earned him a spot on the newly-formed D Team. Those guys are going places; it’s great to know that MOD helped them get there! Well done, Sadie and Erik!
