Go the Llama!
I was away at Mt Sterling for the weekend, but Shane 'the Llama' Miller had a win
I spent most of the weekend up at Mt Sterling lapping up some really good snowfall, we skied up to Bluff Spur Hut and camped overnight (we cheated, and used the hut for cooking, but we did sleep in our tent on the snow this time!), and spent a bit of time playing on the summit in dry powder snow .. beautiful ... but I was back in time to run the DISC session on Sunday (just!).
On Saturday Shane took out in convincing style his time trial. I don't yet have details, but by his report he 'smashed it', which is great!
I was stuffed from the weekend's ski-ing and felt dead during the warmup on Sunday at DISC, so decided to just run the session, I wouldn't get any quality out of it. As we had a small turnout we varied the program a bit and the troops did some pursuits and a few mini scratch races with the emphasis on tactical experiments and skills. Not that it was easy, they will all have slept well last night, but it was more focussed on racecraft than pure fitness. As we're getting closer to summer(!) it's time to start integrating more tactical and race-specific work into training.
