I am switching how I post training I am going to cut and past the training plan into this section. This will hopefully eliminate different places having different information to eliminate confusion. The amount of training on your particular plan may be different based on our discussions. 

This week we have at time trail, this time trial is going to be awesome training. For this time trial I have data going back many years and you will be able to compare to many athletes over time. We will also redo this TT and so it will be useful to test for progress and improvement. Do not miss out. 

A reminder that we will be doing our first skate TT of the season this Saturday, June 22nd at P8.

Please sign up for the TT at the link below - the deadline is Thursday, June 20th at 11:59 PM. 


Due to our heavy usage of the parkway

1. Bib-pick will be to the P8 side of the parkway, on the grass, running parallel to the pavement. Please do not block access to the roadway or the access points around the gates for cyclists.

2. First start time to 8:30 AM. Please plan your arrival and bib-pick-up accordingly.

3. Category starts will go from longest to shortest distance (9 km/6 km) with the goal to clear as many athletes from each course as possible before starting the next one. This will reduce congestion on all courses and around the turn-around points.

This event runs on volunteers! Parents - we need help with a couple tasks/duties to help the TT run smoothly, please sign up! The link to the event volunteer form is here:

Arrival and Bib Pick Up - 8am


We will have 15 second interval starts, with an additional 2-5 minutes between categories.


Very important to remind you that we are sharing the parkway with bikes, and that while warming up, cooling down and racing, we must be respectful of parkway users. Please use the P8-P9 segment of the parkway for your warm-up and cool-down, follow direction of travel, and do not listen to music while rollerskiing.
