This posting is for is week 43 in our yearly training program, race wek end for both Biathlon and Cross country The focus this week will be short intensities and recovery, no practice on Thursday for those racing on the week end. We will always be focusing on good technique.

Make sure that you are registered for your races, Nordic your race registration closes tonight.

We won the Midget Noram Banner again. Make sure that you congratulate any midgets that you see. They raced very smart and they did Chelsea proud.

Blood tests for iron, if I have not talked to you about blood testing, do not get your blood tested. We are still researching this If you have already gotten your blood tested this is fine please come talk to me about it and please share with me your results.

Make sure that you are doing good recovery as there is no time to be sick. Being sick now could mean missing a race.  Make sure that you are 1. Eating healthy food, limited junk food (less than once per week) 2. Hydrating well (3-4 liters of water a day regularly 3. Sleeping a minimum of 8 hours per night 4. Managing your stress load, living in a positive frame of mind, you now have a bunch of tricks to de-stress quick if you find yourself in a situation that you are stress out. If you are not recovering well during life then the classic symptoms are 1. Being tired and cranky 2. Not motivated to get your work out or other work done. 3. you get sick. Here is an article on staying healthy from athletes at the Calaghan Valley Training Center

 The training program is set up to build you little by little, it should be rare that you feel as though you are totally destroyed after a work out. If you are than your recovery time is going to be longer which will affect the next training. Training also builds over time so if you are missing out on training or you are not doing your own self training you will find that you suffer in team work outs when you do show up. Being successful in a work out is very important to your mental development and your enjoyment of the sport. If you are not able to complete a work out then you don't feel as successful and it is not as fun. .
