This summer I coached about 20 kids from my old high school for nordic skiing. It wasn't quite what I expected, it was even better! We got pretty good weather through out the 6 weeks only a couple thunderstorms and some pretty hot days, but the kids were troupers and toughed it out. We did numerous time trials and some great specific strength intervals. But most of all we did a lot of technique work, and it payed off. The kids worked through many falls and frustrations to become comfortable and efficient skiers, some have some more "tweeking", but over all I am pleased with how hard they worked and how much better they all look. It was so fun for me and such a good learning experience.
