What an AMAZING weekend of fun! The first Barber Lake Challenge was successfully accomplished with a 6.5 mile rollerski UP and a 6 mile trail run down! It was a brutal workout but many of the team did it with a smile and a sense of adventure!
This week we will continue in our next phase of training, conditioining/quadraped. Basically starting to move more towards using our arms and legs! REMINDER: we will be doing our Wednesday run with poles and if we run Saturday it will be with poles as well. You want classic or shorter poles for this, long ones will be difficult and potentially injury inducing!
Some of the team will be headed to Crested Butte for the Cart to Cart race but we'll be having some fun adventure for those who won't be traveling this weekend.
Remember that many of you will need to be doing a little more than just the basic team training. 30 minute runs before Yoga and training on Monday and/or Sunday make this quite easy!
Remember that the weekly hours are posted under 'Fall Training' on the Training Resources page. The team practices will be Habanero.
Don't know your pepper? Ask us! Training is just like with eating hot peppers - it doesn't matter how much you WANT to do nor how much you think you should do but how much your body is actually able to handle. Thus to reach your best performance from year to year you want to be thoughtful in your approach to increasing your training load.
