Well that was crazy.  As in crazy good.  At one point last night we had 30 people out on the training grid for Tuesday night training.  Not sure if it was due to the full moon last night ... or if the moon just wanted to be part of Downtown Nordic.

November and December is THE time to work on technique drills.  Every time you go out, spend 10 or 15 minutes doing the drills to help really dial in the technique.

We've had a few issues with keeping our e-mail list up-to-date, so going forward, I'll put all of the training info on the blog so you can come here for all Downtown Nordic information.

Here's our plan for he next couple of weeks or so:

Thursday, Nov. 30th - skate technique at 7:30

Tuesday, Dec. 4th - technique training - specifice technique TBA

Thursday, Dec. 6th - technique training - specific technique TBA

Monday, Dec. 10th - we start intensity training (note that we'll have training on this Monday only ... the following week we'll revert back to Tuesdays)

Intensity training is generally for those skiing twice a week or more.

Also, if you are looking for a goal this winter, consider a race or two.  A couple of excellent races in January are:
   Skate --> Jan. 20th Birch Open (at the Birch trails west of Carman) - 10km
   Classic --> Jan. 27th Manitoba Loppet in Pinawa - 15km and 30 km options

The entire Manitoba race schedule can be found here:

See you Thursday!
