Season plans

OK, we have some snow to work with.  Assuming the snow sticks around and keeps building up (not always a good assumption even for Winnipeg), our plan is ...

This week, we start training every Tuesday and Thursday at 6:30 at Windsor Park Nordic Centre.  Note that the Nordic Centre is not yet open to the public.  We have received special dispensation from the ski association to train there (involved lots of begging).  Once the Nordic Centre is open to the public, you will need to buy a trail pass.

For training, we'll start off doing lots of work on technique -- generally alternating sessions between skate and classic.  By mid-December, the Tuesday workouts will become interval-training sessions.  And in January, the Thursday sessions will become distance-training.

Now is the time to develop good habits for your technique!
