Sept 8 UPDATE:
Sten Fjeldheim and Jenny Ryan return to the lower peninsula for a one day skating technique and training clinic at the Otsego Ski Club in Gaylord, Michigan on Saturday, October 7. It'll be a full day of classroom discussion, dryland drills, rollerskiing, video taping, and in-depth video analysis of your technique.
The well-equipped skier will have a pair of skate rollerskis, skate poles, running shoes, and clothes for whatever the weather brings. Helmets are not required where we're skiing, but highly recommended! Make sure to bring paper and pen to take notes.
The cost for the clinic is $89, lunch is included, UNTIL NOON ON TUESDAY, OCT 7. On Tuesday, Oct 3 at noon, the price increases to $94. (This increase is because the Otsego Club will charge 50% more for the lunch for anyone who registers after that date.)
The Otsego Club is offering lodging for any participants at the rate of $59.00 plus all applicable taxes for their standard rooms and $89.00 plus all applicable taxes for their White Birch rooms. Call toll free: 1-800-752-5510 or visit their web site at http://www.otsegoclub.com/.

CASCO Nordic Eyewear
Each CASCO frame comes with three interchangeable lenses and a carrying case.

In close cooperation with athletes of the Nordic sports, CASCO has developed a multi-functional eyewear synchronized to their requirements.
A lens that goes all the way across the face and doesn't sit on the nose reduces fogging. Because an adjustable headband holds the "Nordic Eyewear", the best fit and highest possible wearing comfort is guaranteed even with the most extreme types of sports. An external hinge allows the lens to be flipped up to function as protection against the snow or the rain.
Thus the area of application of the Nordic Eyewear is not limited to winter sports. This eyewear is the perfect companion for rollerskiing, hiking or nordicwalking, too.
Want a pair? Contact at Joe Gollinger at "firstname.lastname@example.org".He's offering a temporary special on CASCO Nordic Eyewear (normally $105) for $84.
Here is our platform, which you can expect us to consistently speak from onHammer / E-Caps website and elsewhere:
Daily Diet - Eat whole (organic) foods as much as possible. Avoid packaged, processed foods and junk foods at all times. Do not consume any artificial sweeteners, colors, or flavors, and avoid preservatives as much as possible. The quality of the calories you consume ALWAYS matters.
Sugar Bad - Avoid all "ose" (sucrose, fructose, glucose, etc.) highly processed sugars in your daily diet and especially during exercise. These sugars are not only inefficient fuels, they're health hazards as well.
Protein - It's not just for strength athletes; it's vitally important for endurance athletes as well. Consume 1/2 gram of protein per pound of bodyweight daily as a minimum. Increase to 3/4 gram/pound of bodyweight daily during periods of high volume endurance training and/or when wanting to increase lean muscle mass. When your exercise extends well beyond two hours, soy protein should be included in your fuel.
The "balanced diet" myth/the necessity of prudent supplementation - How many of you take no supplements because you believe you eat a "balanced diet?" Did you know that there has never been a single clinical study that documents what comprises a balanced diet, nor one that has demonstrated one's ability to meet basic nutrient requirements through whole foods alone? That's because it is not possible. Thus, our position that prudent supplementation is essential for optimum performance and health.
Fueling during exercise - Replace what you can effectively assimilate, not what you lose, with limited, measured fluids, complex carbs, moderate sodium and other electrolytes, and soy protein when exercising beyond two hours. Also avoid products that contain "ose" highly processed sugars, artificial sweeteners, colors or flavors.
