September 28- October 3, 2015

So it seems that a first has occurred… I forgot to do the blog last night. My apologies to everyone! :S

Please read all notes below:

1. Ski sizing needs to happen but I need to get a few more bodies to help me out and this week isn't looking good for assistance in sizing. IF you're going to Edmonton, just take your gear and they will size you there. We will be getting it done, I'm just not sure when exactly.

2. Ernies is offering a 20% discount on XC related gear and clothing for members on the team. Just let them know at the till and they will ask for ID from your parents- or proof of who you are.

3. Walk, Run n More is offering a 10% discount on all their gear in their store to any athlete who identifies themselves as being a member of the XC Race Team. Please thank both businesses when you're in there shopping, for supporting us!!!

4. This week there will be 4 practices for the senior race team as next weekend THERE WILL BE NO PRACTICE as it's Thanksgiving! Yay for turkey day and a long weekend. :D

This week is the last build week in our first cycle- which means more FUN!!! Bring on the puking, bring on the pain and bring on being stronger as the end of this cycle then you've been since last year!;)

Tuesday- meet at the lodge- it's going to be fast and furious so bring your tunes if you have some good ones and if you have a speaker that is better than mine- bring it too. :D

Thursday- meet at muskoseepi for one of my favourite workouts!

Saturday- meet for roller skiing at our usual spot. If the pavement is really, really wet then we won't be roller skiing, but if it's just wet then we will be going out. Please don't text me to see if we're roller skiing or not- just show up prepared and you all have to run regardless for a warm up… I don't need to receive 15 texts please. :) Bright coloured clothing is a must and helmet, boots, skis and poles obviously as well!

Sunday- optional training day- it's an extra so if you can't make it don't fret… but if you can- it'll be on technique. Technique is not where I want it to be yet so I'll have the camera out and will be out on the trails from 2-5. Bring a snack, patience, bandaids (:D) and your water bottle. Bright coloured clothing is a must and helmet, boots, skis and poles obviously as well!

Thursday- Muskoseepi- water, running shoes, dressed for the weather- please have gloves and hats ready for the kids as once the sun goes down it cools off very quickly for the kids.

Sunday- Lodge- same as Thursday! :) 2-3:30.
