Re: Start skate skiing?

As far as racing both are super fun, and add different strategies to racing, its also nice to switch up training once in a while.

Re: Technique: Why are skate poles longer?

Classic poles are shorter because you can get the power of your shoulders over them easier while striding, and skate pole are longer to give better reach and a longer push, because you are essentially double poling while moving your legs, and when you double pole with skate poles you can push furthe...

I think he is sending my to an alergist because they do the asthma tests and we want to see if my asthma has come back, and if it has want them to prescribe a medication possibly.

Re: Poor Heart Rate Recovery After Races

My peak heart rate during the race was 193, and usually it’s around 197-201. The weird thing was that the graph had lots of ups and downs, with a low of 134. Normally the graph is pretty consistent with a change of maybe ten beats even on the same coarse. My pre-race heart rate seemed pretty normal....

Re: Poor Heart Rate Recovery After Races

My doctor is having me get an echocardiogram and is also sending me to the allergist. I was wearing a Heart rate moniter and have the data from it. You think I should bring it for them to look at?

It took 30 minutes for my heart rate to recover to 100. My resting heart rate is typically around 65 bpm. I ...

Re: New to the Forum

I used to like skating more, but this year my classic technique has improved a lot, so now I might like that better. I did my first 25K ski race last weekend, it was classic and went pretty well. During ski season my team usually trains 5-6 days a week, 2 hours a day, and in the summer our team trai...
