We started a new tradition last week with the fist ever Fall Break Camp! The camp was for Comp and Devo Plus skiers and was a challenging combination of rollerskiing, running, strength, and hiking.
Thursday we kicked off the camp with climbing at the Fit Stop followed by a classic rollerski speed session.
Friday we arrived to find the rollerski loop packed with the best skiers from around the country. Due to the volume of fast skiers already on the track we took the opportunity to watch from the sidelines and do a moosehoof/bounding workout. The athletes also taught Coach Morgan the best way to travel downhill, by sagebush jumping! The activity consists of planting both poles and then launching over the sagebrush. I think the National Team skiers were a bit jealous of our workout ;)
In the afternoon we made our way down to the new Murdock Canal trail for a skate sprint technique workout. Everyone improved their cornering, v2 alternate and v2 technique dramatically!!!
Saturday, was a smaller crew but we still headed our for a hike up Iron Canyon in Park City followed by a classic specific strength workout on the rollerski track at SoHo. The new pavement sure is NICE!
Remember, winter is getting closer and closer... train hard and have fun =)
