XCFeedsNationals Week: Day 1 Sprint UPDATED

Avatar Sverre CaldwellNovember 12, 2011

We had an excellent sprint practice this morning. It was a good way to kick off our simulation of Nationals week. We have been doing this for 4-5 years now and we find that it is a good way to practice and gain confidence for the “real” National Championships week.

Today we had 2 different courses for our sprint practice. We started with an uphill prelim and heat and ended with a pretty flat prelim and heat. As always, ski speeds differ and you can’t put too much on the results, but you can see how each skier did alone (prelim) vs in a group (heat) and how they held up through the four races.

After the uphill prelim we broke everyone into groups of 4 or 5 for their heats (based on prelim times). Here are the times for the uphill sprints:
Paddy 3:05, 3:21
Nick 3:11, 3:29
Hamish 3:17, 3:23
Mac 3:19, 3:30

Gino 3:21, 3:23
Tyler 3:21, 3:23.5
Charlie 3:26, 3:22
Koby 3:35, 3:49

Brooke 4:02, 4:09
Heidi 4:13, 4:13
Katharine 4:19, 4:11
Mollie 4:25, 4:24
Kate 4:37, 4:41

Russell 4:46, 4:57
Helena 5:02, 5:02
Tess 5:28, DNF
Pippin 5:31, DNF
Alex 5:41, 5:58

The flatter course was run the same way, but we only had 2 heats instead of 4 for the finals. Here are the times based in order of prelim times.

Paddy 2:53, 2:55
Gino 3:00, 2:52
Nick 3:01, 2:54
Hamish 3:08, 3:00
Charlie 3:08, 3:04
Tyler 3:12, 3:03
Mac 3:19, 3:09

Koby 3:32, 3:21
Brooke 3:32, 3:22
Heidi 3:38, 3:32
Katharine 3:55, 3:52
Mollie 4:02, 3:50
Kate 4:15, 4:08
Helena 4:28, 4:19
Russell 4:32, 4:24
Pippin 5:00, DNS
Alex 5:28, 5:31

Job well done!

Missing from this list are Corky (recovering from mono so he did leg speeds), Anika (resting her calves so she did some tough upper body specific strength), ‘Kenzie (home recovering from a cold), Skyler (recovering from a car mishap), Issy and Calvin (running in the NE Championships in RI…more from them later).

Anika on classic skis today.
