We had a really productive classic workout this morning. We warmed-up skiing easy for 30 minutes, then we did three intervals of 20 minutes each at threshold (a pace you can sustain for at least an hour). In each interval, we had two sprint bonuses. A sprint bonus is a “finish line” in the middle of a race where world cup points or cash are awarded to the first person or people across the line. They are a staple in every world cup mass start. Today’s workout was a great way to practice without having a full race. Tad Elliott dressed up old school with knickers and long socks for the workout:
On the cool-down, Eric Packer took this cool picture of me in the tunnel.
This afternoon we went for an easy hour and a half run as a group and started getting our stuff together. Tomorrow morning we have one last ski in the tunnel. Then we drive to Munich and do strength there. On Friday we fly back to the U.S.
