If have xc skied some winters. My basic observation is not as specific but if it fits in your life better do it. Two specific reflections: classic for z1/2 and skate ski for higher intensity intervals. I was simply not a good enough skate skier to stay in z1/2.
Hi, I’m training for long days of ski mountaineering. For life reasons, it’s easier for me to substitute two days/week of skate skiing into my 16-week ski mountaineering training plan.
1. Any general advice on how to include skate skiing?
2. Can I do the following workout on skate skis instead of skinning or running/hiking?
“STEEP Uphill Intervals Zone 4
Hike as steeply uphill as you can find locally. 20’easy warm up
Then 6x 3min @ HR= AeT/MAF plus 15-20bpm
3′ easy walk/hike/jog for recovery between
Then 30′ easy uphill @HR< AeT”
Time given is for the uphill portion”
