It still takes just as many steps to get to the cafeteria at the OTC. It's still popular to hate the free and always prepared warm meals that we're given. Our room is still the same size. It's still a race to fall asleep before Leif's snoring ramps up. Conversely, I'm the one who always wakes up an hour earlier in the morning to get the day going. Roller skiing hasn't gotten any more exciting. That one would be asking for a lot.
There are a few changes worth mentioning. Training volume is on pace for a solid 100 hour reduction. That's a lot! The coaches and I all know that the training is there. Loading on more hours isn't going to make a significant difference. The base level is in a safe place. At this point my best course of action is to focus on the weak points. Hits and range times are the most limiting. Transitions, balance, and top end speed are also on the to fix list. The training load may be lower, but the top end effort zone will get some extra care. Warm ups and cool downs will decrease. The lack of volume will help the harder sessions be more productively hard. I'll also have more time on my hands for slowfire. It would be nice to break the 500 mark on the precision test before I die.
