We have been doing a lot of technique work on roller-skis, with the occasional fall (but don't worry, only 1 person ended up bleeding), as well as some endurance in the form of a time trial on Tuesday.
The trial wasn't bad, with the team averaging a 5:00-ish lap on the .86 kilometer course. The top 2 times were 20:38 and 21:08 for 5 laps (myself and Hannah Benson respectively).
|4.3 km of wet dirt hill.|
And now, as we come up onto week 3 of training, our official on-snow total is a whopping 1 day... with some of us, such as myself, venturing out on weekends to find whatever snow is left. Today it was at Bretton Woods. The snow/gravel mix was a little rough on the skis, but it was worth the drive (and the $5). We plan on being there again tomorrow, hopefully with more of the team.
