Race Reminder and Schedule Change for March

First, please note that #7 at Mt Itasca has been moved to Saturday the 21st of March to allow those racing in Europe in March and those doing XC Nationals in California time to return.

Secondly, the conditions at Elk River are described as of yesterday as firm but good skiing. We will be watching this closely during the early part of the week, and we have an alternative site in mind, if conditions deteriorate.

Thirdly, if you have done a novice event in the past year, and would like to try a full biathlon race [but not carry and shoot prone only] please contact me asap. I have 2 rifles available yet.

And finally, if you plan to attend the ER event this coming Saturday, please let me know by mid week.

Thanks

Enjoy the Journey!!

Training Article

Hi All,
Here is an older article that has some good solid general training information based on scientific physiology studies.
A] really good background info
B] I think the point about intensity of intervals to increase your speed is right on…just a little over your current race pace. If you are looking at 50 km’s that will basically be at about your lactate threshold. If you are training for 5-10km races you need to figure out how fast you have been skiing—then increase that slightly for your speed training. Simultaneously you need to keep improving your efficiency on skis –your technique. That is a never ending process!!

Enjoy!
