Biathlon Fitness Training

February 25 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm PST

1330 – 1530 hrs. Stomping Grounds coffee shop, Osprey Village. Dress is sports gear; dress for the weather (including a running jacket, hat and gloves) and bring a water bottle with water. OPI Capt Middelveen; coach: CV Underwood. I am interested in starting a cross-country running team as well. If you’re interested, come on out!

This Week: I want to view the Effective Speaking Competition in the morning, so I’m moving the fitness training to the afternoon. It won’t conflict with Range, as they’re away for the competition. We’ll meet at 13:30 pm. 2 km warm up, then stretch; 5 km easy/moderate pace – 10 min recovery, 3k Moderate/fast, then stretch. Finish by 15:30. Each week the easy/moderate speed goals are to increase to prepare for the sun run and future biathlon competitions. The ultimate goal is to run 10 km continuously; hopefully we can all run the Golden Ears Bridge together!

Cadet participants are to run at least twice per week, 2km before the next training, and run on your own time if you can’t make the training session. Cadets can download “Map My Run” and it will record distance and time (there are other tracker apps such as Google Fit, Adidas Sports, Asics Runkeeper or Nike Run Club). Note that as part of your level training, you are supposed to track your physical activity anyway, using the Physical Activity Tracker available from the Sqn web page.
