Skate Speeds.

Sverre CaldwellSeptember 5, 2011

On Monday, Wednesday and Friday we get a morning workout from 11 to 12:15 (in addition to our afternoon workout). This time slot works well for agility, speed work and strength.

This morning we worked on skate agility and speed. We started with 1 km loops at the Sun Bowl that included a “leg speed” and a slalom course. After about 8 kms of that, we practiced some sprint finishes on the flat and up the hill.
It was a fun workout and the only ones who fell were Sophie and Izzy :).
