Update for MNCup #3

This morning we groomed the race loops at the Nisswa range. Really worked up better than I expected. We will touch them up on Saturday am also.

There are a few windblown areas with some grass showing and the windy days brought down some pine needles on the camel humps..but otherwise should be great skiing! These courses will reward quick technique transitions, and good cornering skills. The snow will be cold with some ice mixed in—so really fast. Temps are forecast in the low 20’s.

I will send out a start list on Saturday for the Sprint. It will be randomly selected; while the following Pursuit format at 10 sec start intervals will be in the order of finish from the Sprint. Eleven athletes so far are planning on starting.

This Coming Week the 16th of July, 2018

Good Afternoon All,

This coming week is the 2nd week of the 4th month of training. It is characterized by a lot of strength work, and a fair amount of distance and intensity. First summer rollerski biathlon race of the year at Elk River is on Thursday late afternoon/ eve. Please let me know if you are coming, I am working on a start list.

You should be putting in at least 4 roller ski workouts this week. Race on Thurs, a over distance ski of over 2 hrs earlier in the week with some hard sprints thrown in, a specific strength [double pole 10km + legs only 10km] and a Threshold block workout next weekend after some recovery from the race on Thursday. Other activities that are good will be lifting a couple of times, biking standing up, a few short hill runs with poles, and some swim time for cool downs…check your time plans for a time goal.

The schedule for the Nisswa area for the week will be:
Tues 1:00 at the range—some might be late, get there when you can—accuracy, range procedure and some hard combos running.
Thurs- lv Nisswa at 1:45 for ER. Pickup in LF at Holiday at 2:30. Arr ER at 4:00—help set up—zero at 5:00 race at 6:00 or a bit earlier depending on numbers and how zero goes.

Please get your logs up to date—and if you have some gaps earlier in the year—go back and estimate what you did that week. An estimate is better than a blank. For those sharing with me, I will check in on your log, for those not, please forward your current updates to me.

Enjoy the Journey! Hope to see you on Thursday at Elk River! I am expecting we will end up with around 12-15 participants, mostly newcomers. So don’t feel bashful!!
