Here are the basics for this week for practice and the meets. The next 8 days are going to be a very busy week, with 3 races, waxing on two days, and one hard workout. However, after the 1st (next Monday), we will have a much more spread out schedule for us to be more relaxed and focus on some areas. This next week will allow us to see what we are doing well and what we need to improve on, thus focus more on those areas than we have been able to in the past.
I have not received very much detail on the meets for Tuesday or Saturday as of right now, but as soon as I do I will post it.
Monday, Classic at Bunker Memorial. Team waxing after practice at the high school. This will take about 10 mins longer per skier this week due to having to clean out kick zones and putting on what is called a base binder for better kick performance.
Tuesday, Classic race at Woodland Trails in Elk River (directions below). Bus leaves at 2:30. Girls at 3:45, Boys at 4:30
Wednesday, Skate at Bunker Memorial
Thursday, Skate: for those Varsity that can will go to Woodland Trails (much more challenging terrain, others will get similar work in at Bunker just not as big of hills); Bunker Campground for everyone else.
Friday, Skate at Bunker Golf Course. Team waxing after practice at the high school. This will be a longer wax session since we would like to get a hard wax into their skis before the wax of the day.
Saturday, Mora Race at Mora Vasaloppet Center in Mora, MN. Bus leaves at 8:00am (more info to come, including directions)
Woodland Trails: Highway #10 West, through downtown Elk River, to Proctor Ave. Turn north (right) and follow road as it veers left after the Jr. High, becoming County #1/Elk Lake Road NW. Continue for about 2 miles and take a right at Woodland Trails, just beyond club house. The parking lot is next to the start/finish line. (If the lot is full when you arrive, there will be parking available at the Golf Course).
