This morning we did an easy classic ski near school and broke up into small groups for some classic drills. Pictures here are of everyone doing the running drill – going from a run to full-on classic stride and working on getting weight forward and having a nice, snappy kick. We did one-on-one meetings with each skier after practice and then headed to the dining hall for lunch. Everyone’s in class now and the coaches are busy unpacking and organizing everyone’s skis that were recently stoneground by Caldwell Sport. Tomorrow is our last race for Nationals Week – a 5/10k classic. Stay tuned!
