Fall training in Stratton

After a few easy recovery days following the Lake Placid Camp, we got back at it with an intensity week here in Stratton.  We started the week out with some long intervals up the Stratton Mountain Access road, which recently got repaved making for AWESOME rollerskiing.  The workout called for 2x 25 minutes at threshold pace.

Later in the week we did skating sprint intensity workout, consisting of 14 repititions of 30″ at close to max speed.

The last few days the weather has turned really rainy.  It’s almost as if someone flicked a switch from summer to fall.  The leaves up at the mountain are at peak color.

Sunday night we hosted a reception for the SMST2 team to meet with supporters and members of the community.
