Video Excerpts From Late Evening Hammer Session
Longer Video Excerpt Done By My Oldest Son
The Ski Season is over. This spring was spent doing some introspection about what needed to be changed from previous years in order to attain my ski related goals. Figuring out what the focus of my training was going to be. Getting used to the skiing treadmill in the training facility behind my house. (Area 143)
Basically over the last 3 years the main proportion of work has been aimed towards increasing the aerobic portion of the power curve. This was done at times to excess. Intensity was almost entirely below the surrogate marker of a mixed venous lactate of 4.0 mmoles/deciliter. This goal has been achieved .Now it is time to train my body to go fast and also to ignore pain and suffering. Now the goal is to ski fast and attain World Class results in the discipline of Biathlon. Considering my age, geographical handicap, responsibilities to work and family this may be improbable. Even being cognizant of all that the decision is to carry on.
If mankind did not dream and go against the odds than nothing would ever get done.
Also I am of the belief that a situation is what you make of it. Hell to you, can be Paradise to others. So along the way I hope to make people laugh, sometimes think or ponder and overall have fun.
Right now I am working at work, working on getting fast, working on improving shooting, and doing a little Bike Racing. Driving back to Lake Placid, NY And Jericho, VT to do some specific Biathlon training. Finishing up the 3 Weeks of Whiteface with the 8 mile Bike Race Up the Toll road Saturday at 17:30. Looking forward to some Biathlon rollerski races. Generally training hard and smarter to realize the outlandish standard set by me for myself.
Psyched to tryout the new version of the 100 series Rollerskis with the newest 98 series new wheels. Just received them and so far they felt awesome on the Skatemill. Have to install the speed reducers and brake on them. Just like a helmet I believe for most rollerskiing speed reducers and brakes are not optional. By most rollerskiing I mean any rollerskiing on a road where you have to modulate your speed. Although I am not a lawyer, I believe that at least in New York State that by having brakes you are really legal to travel on the roadways. Do not quote me on that to the authorities. You can take my legal opinion to Starbuck’s and get a tall cup of coffee for just under $2. That’s all it is good for.
