As fall approaches and the seasons turn I look forward to the XC season and the XC Nordic season. This year there will be an increased focus on the Nordic side with one hard workout per week roller skiing and the other running, each workout being followed by plyometric strength so that the recovery days remain recovery.
The focus of training will be regeneration work with long slow workouts with two intensity sessions per week, the intervals being short but highly intensive, followed by long stretches of low intensity.
In terms of racing I am focusing on the Franks XC Series, Saucony Race Series and then Nationals in Kingston, on the ski side the season will start at Frozen Thunder and then the Alberta Cups, local NorAms and Nationals in Canmore.
The new gear from Salomon has arrived in time for some prep and the helmets are donned for roller skiing!
