14 Week - Tapper

 Wow!  We are starting to ski great!  What a fantastic weekend of racing in Jackson!  It was beautiful, the competition was intense and the skiing was fast and fun!   Guess what?   We are in our PEAKING portion of the season!!!  Woohoo!!! This is when we take some of the training load off and let our bodies super compensate for all the hard work we have done.  It is really important that you do not stop training right now and you do not start any new activities right now.  You want to focus on staying/getting healthy, eating well, sleeping, and focusing your energy where it is needed! This Peaking program works extremely well if you: Do the training properly and don't do too much (you'll get tired and not race to your potential) Do the training properly and don't do too little (you'll get sick) Even if you are not going to state or nationals this will help you with the last couple of weeks of your season and help with any spring races you are planning to do. One last th

13 Week - Start of Tapper & Jackson Race

 I want to start out by thanking you all for your amazing racing and perseverance this past weekend in Lander.  You all did such an amazing job and I really feel like things are starting to come together for our team!   The exciting news is you did it!  You have made it to the point in the season where we start to Tapper!  Tapper is when we start to take the number of hours we have been training down and start to shorten up our interval sessions.   THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF TAPPER:  You do not want to stop training nor do you want to start anything new!!!  This is not when you start up your new hobby of roller skating at the terrain park!  If you stop training the chances of getting sick go way up.  This is not the way to ski your fastest at state.   Monday AM:  Core and Yoga on your own Monday:   Classic Skiing / 45 min. Active Recovery Ski and Technique work (this is an easy ski at a low intensity designed to leave you feeling recovered at the end!) *Name the team for Jackso
