This is week 9 in our yearly training program, this means that it is a easy building week. This week has the least volume of the three building weeks cycle and a little more than last block. 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 you 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. We will be focusing on pacing, strength and roller ski technique.

Happy Canada Day everyone. Holiday season is now here and there are many people gone. This is a big opportunity for those of you that are here because we will have smaller training groups which means that you will get more of my time. This will mean a significant improvement in technique and understanding of the sport. We will still be having a ton of fun.
