Frozen Thunder is here, and we have an amazing opportunity to be skiing in October! We will be using frozen thunder to tune in technique and get a jump on the year to be the best skiers you can be.
Things are a little different this week, so read carefully.
Tuesday (21): 4:30-6:30 Classic skiing technique and intensity. Remember, 4:30 means training starts, not you are just arriving and still need to put on your clothes and wax your skis. Recommended wax is a 50/50 klister mix of Rodi Rosa and Swix Universal. You can also use harries, but they had a little less grip than klister this afternoon. If you don’t have those brands, you can do a 50/50 mix of warm and universal. Also, we will be starting the session with a short survey from the University of Lethbridge.
Wednesday (22): No team training, coaches at a coaching course. Check training peaks for your workout. XC athletes born in 2000, 45 minute zone 1 run on your own.
Thursday (23): 4:30-6:30 Skate ski on frozen thunder and light strength. Bring your running shoes just in case the skiing is bad.
Friday (24): Sprint race on Frozen Thunder for 1997-98 cross country athletes. Come and cheer if you are not racing.
Saturday (25): No team training, see Sunday
Sunday (26): 11:00am-2:00pm Confeteration Park Relays!!! Please arrive at 11am to ensure you get a proper warm up. Confederation Park is next to Rosemont Hall- 2807 10th St. NW Calgary. We will meet at the start finish line. Bring: change of shoes (you have a stream crossing at the end of the race), clothes for after the race, and a desert if you would like to partake in the potluck/soup feed at the end of the day.
