I did classic intervals this morning with the Canadian men. The session was much harder for me than the skate session we did last week. Today we did 6 by 4 minutes. The pace for every interval was around race pace. Devon Kershaw, second in the overall world cup last season was leading the pack. I was able to get on the same skis as all the Canadians. I skied with Devon until two minutes to go in the last interval when he put in a move I couldn’t answer. Overall it was a good, hard session. I am fairly happy with the way I felt. Unfortunately I don’t have any pictures or video of the session to post.
This afternoon I ran for an hour and a half then did core strength. I am tired and ready for an off day tomorrow.
