Summer Training This Week: May 29 to June 4

Hello All

We will try again with the Strength Test: This Saturday June 2 (see below for details). Going forward we will do two intensity sessions per week, on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Typically the Tuesday session will be on foot (running etc), and Saturday will be rollerskiing (RS). However, this week we will RS on Tuesday since we are doing the strength testing on Saturday.

Speaking of the strength test, there will be two sessions and only room for 4 persons per session. Email me your preference (10:00 to 11:15 or 11:15 to 12:30). First come, first served.

See you Tuesday!
