Back to Work
Skiing at Whiteface on the 28th of April
After enjoying a relaxing April, I am now back to my normal training routine. Unlike the previous few Aprils, this year I decided not to travel anywhere and instead I stayed right here in Lake Placid. I spent more than six months on the road last year so I was really content to just relax around home this spring.Of course I was just not sitting around for the entire April, but I was just not following any set training schedule. I did spend quite a bit of time talking with my coaches this spring and together we now have a plan for next year. I am really excited about the plan that we made. I feel like we kept the aspects that have worked well for me in the past but we are also exploring a few new areas. Of course I want to continue improving so in order to do that I need to continually mix up my training. Even though I am happy with how my shape was for most of last season, I need to try new things to give my body some new stresses to react to.Today I was out for a four-hour bike ride and now my legs are definitely a little sore. I always find that I have the hardest time with training during the first few weeks back after spring break. My body is always a little shocked and it takes a few weeks to fully adjust. Some of the adaptations come really quick though as I can already feel my appetite kicking back in.Springtime in Lake Placid is always a little unpredictable and the weather can vary from summer temperatures to winter snowstorms as we saw last week. Last week we received a pretty decent snowstorm and I had to dig my skis back out for another two days of alpine skiing. Although that was fun, I am hoping for some warmer temperatures for my spring training.Thanks for checking in!
