Hello Ski Fans,
There is no training scheduled on Oct 31st as it is Halloween;) Saturday October 2nd at 1pm Adam will lead the JD group in a run at Myra-Bellvue Park which is off Stewart Road East at 1pm. Bring bounding poles and crunching mats.
Next Tuesday October 5th we will be running a wax clinic for coaches and parents in order to prepare for the season at my house at 6pm 2755 Guidi Rd. This is a great opportunity to prepare for the seasons races and general everyday waxing as well. The older TR2 group will lead a run and strength for the JDs and TR1s.
Last night we did the NST Strength Testing and most of the Critical Speed Test… The Critical Speed Test results were good. Most Skiers showed a lot of improvement over the September Test. Good Work!
Black were October times, Blue was September and Red is the Cross Country Canada Standard. I also created a way to track skiers progress with times by age for the 1000 m and 3000 m. So now people can compare how fast they are now to other skiers when they were younger. This is below.
Now for the National Ski Team Standardized Testing. Generally most of the younger skiers need to improve their upper body strength to weight ratio. Most results did not improve; so I guess we know what we need to work on now. October Results are Here:
Keep on Training Hard!
