What a great day of work, both training and trail work, on Saturday! Super proud of you all!
You have now completed the first rotation of fall and done the recover week. We are now headed into our next section, Hill Resistance/LT. We have completed the bulk of 'filling our bucket' and are now ready to start introducing some speed into the equation! I know some of you have been waiting in breathless anticipation to go fast so you should be excited!
The goal of Hill Resistance is to start working on our Lactate Threshold and getting your muscles used to working at a higher output. Bring your bounding poles to practice on Wednesday.
For Saturday we will be doing the Silent Trails 10mi race. This is a free race and it is completely up to you how you run it. You can race and push yourself OR you can treat it like an OD run and run with a group. Either way we would like everyone to do the race course as it is super fun and GREAT training!
REMINDER: UW athletes be sure to check your practice and volunteer points at the following link. If you do not meet the numbers for your chosen team you will not be able to race this winter. If you have conflicts and are training on your own be sure to contact coaches, there are things that can be done but they cannot be done in December! Don't wait until it's too late! bit.ly/SteamboatRankings
Let's get that Hill Resistance and start warming up for the early season dragons!
