Next week, we will focus our training on higher volume. We will do long and sustained workouts at low-intensity.

Monday: 8:30am – 10:30 at the Range. Skate roll + specific strength.
Tuesday: (possible bonus for more advanced rollerskiers) Classic rollerski in the Jeffersonville-area. Approx 8:30-10:45am.
Wednesday: 8:30am – 10:30 at Sleepy Hollow. Adventure run/hike and bounding.
Thursday: 4:30pm-6:30pm at Charlotte Beach. Skate rollerski + speed work.
Saturday: 9:00am – early afternoon. Camel’s Hump hike. Bring a friend / bring the family. We will do some high-intensity hiking/running during this workout. And we will try to get a huge group photo at the summit!

Photos from this past Monday and Wednesday:
On Monday we worked on skate rollerskiing at the Range. We did some drills followed by technique work and strength.

On Wednesday we trained at CVUHS. After our dryland drills warmup, the crew did a bunch of agility and plyometric drills, followed by short intervals on the track, uphill sprints, strength, and a game of speedball.
