Nordic Skiers
The new nordic calendar year begins. Time to put your sharpened ferrels on your rollerski poles, inspect the rollerskis, and start planning and logging ski hours.
  • make sure you have an annual plan - here is an example
  • plan your hours on Sunday for the upcoming week
  • rollerskier - once or twice a week - 50/50 skate/classic
  • use a Weekly Training log
  • running with track team will give you plenty of speed, intensity and strength
  • make sure you get in a good overdistance workout once a week (80+ min)
  • motivate your teammates by logging your hours
  • Birkie price increase July 7. Johnson cabin will be available for HP skiers and family until full. Contact mpj.

“you don’t become a champion by winning a morning workout. The only true way is to marshal the ferocity of your ambition over the course of many days, weeks, months, and (if you could finally come to accept it) years. The Trial of Miles; Miles of Trials." from the book "Once a Runner".

Racing Effectively - for nordic skiers, but works for runners too
