We just wanted to let you know about a few options for training for this summer courtesy of Boulder Nordic Sports.
Remember the old adage about Nordic: Skiers are made not on snow but in the offseason.
- Training with Bates Coach James Upham through the BNS Acceleration Project is available several times a week. Nicholas and Julia Werner and Eli Schair-Rigoletti have already started and would LOVE to have you join them. FMI: The program description (including information about James) is available HERE and the Athlete Information Form is available HERE. Feel free to contact him directly, too, at jamupham (at) gmail.com.
- For some of this training, skiers need Classic and/or Skate roller skis and poles. The great folks at BNS, Roger and Mark, are happy to help set you up with some very reasonably priced equipment.
- At a minimum, athletes should plan and keep track of their workouts. There are a number of easy ways to do this — check out THIS DESCRIPTION AND BLANK LOG and/OR THIS WORKOUT OUTLINE. If you’d like an overview of Summer Training, check out THIS BLOG. Plus keeping a training log really helps both your coaches and your performance.
