Big Rivers Classic Workout 7:06 AM; Hamline Midway/Como Park
18.4 °C; Cloudy It rained early this morning and I had already sent Karl an email to cancel. Never heard back and it didn't rain any longer, so I went to pick him up. Good thing we went, no rain while we were out and on classic roller skis, the wet pavement (dry under tree cover) doesn't really make a difference on classic roller skis. Did the usual workout, no-[ole striding down, L3 double poling up. The last interval turned out to be more of an L4. Nice progression in terms of speed, last one also being the fastest one. Tried to focus on the abdominal crunch and knee flexion. A few runners, walkers and bikers, light use. Four turkeys crossing trail near Lucky 13, as we were finishing up.

EU MYR Skate Intervals 5 x 5:00 L3, 2 x 2:00 L4 6:37 PM; Battle Creek West
26.9 °C; Clear Karl wasn't able to make it tonight because of a World Cup prep meeting so I drove alone. Didn't have any great expectations for this workout given my performance during previous sessions. So I was surprised that I was able to keep up with the A squad for the L3 intervals while staying L3 myself. I think this was a combination of them really watching their heart rate and my skate wheels being run down to the quick. I even led one interval, the only time I got into L4 territory. Did two L4 after and that's when Alan and Anatoly clearly pulled away. More than everything, I was happy to be able to keep up with those guys!
