Want to fine tune your V1, skate climbing, or the amount your legs can tolerate in a given ski workout? This year's Climb to the Castle champion Mary Rose has the workout for you: a Level 4 uphill rollerski interval session she did while training at low altitudes on the East Coast.
For this week's workout, one of nine American skiers invited to the International Junior Camp in Norway shares the training session they did Monday: a competitive skate-sprint simulation on a 1.5 k loop.
Logging too many hours to ski fast? The debate is raging in Norway, where Olympian Frode Estil weighed in last week when he argued that many skiers are obsessed with logging hours at the expense of training quality. Longtime coach Mona Hjellsand strongly agrees.
