After the long and stressful race season that involved my pinnacle goal of making the 2014 Olympic Team (that didn't, but did, but didn't happen... long story), I was ready to take it very easy this spring which involved a lot of running and biking and BBQ-ing. Normally I take May 1st as my call to action date for the beginning of training. That date was moved back to June 1st this year to allow for complete R&R.
After only biking and running for the past few months I was a little apprehensive to jump back onto rollerskis. To my pleasant surprise, I found my first session on the rollers very medicinal. Besides being a great workout, I found that the summers and autumns that I have focused a lot of volume/energy/intensity on rollerskiing I had my best race seasons. I am excited to be rollerskiing on Swenor again this summer and below is a few video on product reviews but also a quick recap of what entails a specific strength workout.
Happy training, skiers are made in the summer!
