The nordic team just finished out it's fourth week of official practices this fall. I'd say it's going pretty well for most of us, despite a few illnesses. We are continuing to work hard and mindfully.
This week had a lot of variety; we did some skate roller-ski intervals at Brown's Bridge, a run with speeds, and a classic roller-ski. We've also been continuing morning circuit training.
This weekend 10/21-23 was quite the mix of weather. Friday and Saturday were the first few rainy and cold days we've had in awhile; Sunday was also brisk and windy, but the skies cleared up and the sun came out. There was even some snow sighting!
Friday, we concluded the school week with speedball and strength in the field house. Saturday, the team got up early in the cold and dreary, rainy weather for an arduous running interval session at Suny Canton. In the afternoon, we headed inside for some strength and weightlifting. Even with the sun shining on Sunday, it was starting to feel a lot like winter! The air was crisp with the smell of wood fires burning from people's wood-stoves, all along the wind shoved in our faces as we classic skied from Colton into Parishville to South Colton and concluded at Higley Flow State Park. We ended the ski with Jenny Townsend's homemade delicious muffins!
