The Fourth has come and gone. It seems a little hard to believe with the cool, wet weather we had all through June, not to mention the fact that I haven't even gone swimming yet! What a crime. But it's true and things are starting to heat up around here again, both literally and figuratively.
Because I the rollerski biathlon races at Jericho in August are counting as part of our trials for the World Cup trials in Sweden this November, I have to have my game on a little earlier than normal this summer. This has meant a lot more intensity combos earlier in the summer, and a bit more focus on all the other little details, such as rifle adjustments, technique work and shooting speed. I think this will have a positive effect on my racing by the time the snow flies.
So the training continues. I will finish off this week with a time trial in Fort Kent on Sunday and then take a short rest for a day or two, where I hope to spend as much time as possible in the water! Then I gear up for my first big intensity block.
Hoping you all had a wonderfully relaxing Fourth of July. Mine was spent training, watching The Tour and rollerskiing in the Stockholm, Maine parade. It is by far the shortest parade I have ever seen or been a part of but it makes up for it in all the great enthusiasm from all the participants and spectators. Below a are few photos from the event. It is defiantly one to remember.
