The following is a summary of my training from my last block. This was the biggest daily average of training I have ever done. The first six days were much smaller than the last two weeks where I trained 69 hours. Here are some clarified terms that I use in my log.

  • Double Pole- just what it says, no striding, no double pole w/ kick, only upper body
  • Classic- includes all classic technique, striding, kick w/poles and of course double poling
  • Run w/ Poles- on these workouts I bound or ski walk up every incline using my poles. I carry them on downhills and flats
  • Kayak- I use a carbon/kevlar downriver boat with a carbon wing paddle. This equipment is made to go fast in straight lines. Its like a timetrial bike for the water.
