Biathlon Fitness training
November 26 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am PST
1000 – 1130 hrs. Dress is sports gear; dress for the weather. At Osprey Village. OPI Capt Middelveen.
We will be starting our sprinting & aerobic conditioning training for biathlon. The current plan is to meet at The Stomping Grounds coffee shop in Osprey Village at 10:00 am on Sundays (first date will be November 26th). The short term training program is as follows:
Week 1: meet at 10:00 am. 2.5 km warm up, slow pace. Stretch, 5-6 minutes. 2.5 km moderate. Finish by 11:30.
Following weeks: 2 km warm up- stretch; 2 km moderate – 10 min recovery; 2 km speed. Finish by noon. Each week moderate and speed time goals are to shorten and an additional leg added. Ultimate goal is 10 km (2 km x 5 times) with increase in speed at each interval. This will enable our competitors for the run & shoot competition to be well prepared for the 1K or 1.5K legs, depending on age, i.e. under or over 16. Details TBC with the organizers.
