Week 8 – Dec. 31-Jan. 6


Dec. 31st – Jan 6th

Monday, Dec 31

Hyland at 11:00 am -1:00 pm.  Be sure you have your ski pass!!   No bus. Carpool- Give a ride or get a ride.  We have not “reserved” Hyland (no teams can during the holiday weeks) we just need to be extra “heads up”  of where we group up and do drills, skills, etc. SKIER ETIQUETTE is paramount during these busy holiday times. (review below) Thanks guys!

Skiing Etiquette ?1) Ski single file- be aware when others want to go around you. ?2) Be aware of beginner skiers, especially on downhills- give them room?3) communicate with others on the track - "coming up on your left" ?\4) encourage others during races- a simple "nice work" goes a long way?5) NO stopping on the trail- MOVE out of the way  if stopped?6) educate others (fellow athletes, coaches and parents!) about not tracking mud on the snow. 

Note: This is the workout switched from Sunday, Dec 30 since many skiers reported DOMS (delayed onset of muscle soreness) from the Ski Trip.

Monday Workout Description: Steady continuous 1.5 to 2 hr ski. Ideally, classic ski.

Skate is fine if you cannot. If you are unable to get out to ski then use other activities such low level biking, elliptical, swimming, etc.

In the middle of your workout complete 12-16 x 20 sec pick-ups at Level 5.  Between each pick-up take active recovery of 2 min. Get your effort to come back to Level 1.

Workout Details:

Begin with 40 min @ Level 1 (Endurance / Recovery) Easy training; the same mode you’re doing during the workout.

Repeat 12 to 16 times ** how many repeats you choose to do is dependent on your fitness and motivation level.

** Specific speed workout pick-ups 20 sec @ just below sprint effort  Level 5c (anaerobic capacity)

Between pick-ups 2 min @ Level 1 (endurance /recovery)

Finish with 30 to 40 min at  Level 1
