It is a well deserved rest week! You have all put in some excellent volume over
the past few weeks and deserve some well earned recovery time :)


1) Sign up for!
I cannot emphasize the importance of this enough.
Keeping track of your training is essential for both
celebrating improvements and preventing injury.
The code is xcski. Please select Chelsea Nordiq
as your club and Moe, Katie and Eric (biathletes)
as your coaches.

2) Gym
Those athletes that have been in the gym consistently so far this
year, you are now starting Meso 2. Please come to the gym
prepared with the appropriate strength plan.

3) July 24th we will have another time trial, these are priority trainings.
The last time trial we had only a hand full of athletes attend.
This is wasted opportunity as Time Trials our our best opportunity to do race practice.
You need lots of this if you are going to be successful as a racer.
Please make sure that this time trial is marked on your calendar so that you're there.
Registration closes Friday night. See email for link.
