Our goal is to give young skiers an opportunity to ski with their peers, advance their skiing skills and have FUN. Skiers of all abilities are welcome (parents of young skiers are more than welcome too).
This workout focused on 15-30 second efforts. While the longer duration can get away from pure speed, we focus on high-quality (L1 / L2) distance training between each interval to prevent accumulating fatigue.
5 x 3 min intervals building from high threshold (L3) to maximum effort on the last effort, 3-4 minute recovery between each. We choose safe roads, and a gradual grade with smooth pavement to ensure high speed.
The US Ski Team uses rollerski agility speed test to push the athlete outside their comfort zone so that zone can grow that much larger. When that ice patch surprises you in on skis, you're ready for it.
