Good Morning Everyone!!
Attached is a checklist for good skating ski technique. As you get onto rollerskis again, take a few of these points at a time and work on them—over and over!! Then add a few more each time you ski…..
Good technique is the foundation for ski speed..you always want to optimize what you are doing to the terrain, snow conditions, your level of fitness and fatigue!! You should be skiing at around to slightly above your lactate threshold [Race Pace] in any biathlon race—and, of course, learning when to start backing down as you approach the range; along with learning to shoot at a HR/lactate level just below your threshold.
So look this over, and get on back to me with any questions!!
