“Hokey Pokey”

The girls from the Development Program are so much fun to ski with on the weekend- my co-coach Meg and I gather them at the sign and then the day begins! We start the day at 8:45 with a dash to the high speed quad to the top (as all the groups do this at 8:45 it is an overwhelming feeling at the quad – what a rally!) and normally we head to the North Face after a quick stretch at the top of the mountain. I noticed the last weekend others were stretching at the top – pretty funny all these groups in their circles… so we made a game of it – “Hokey Pokey”. “you put your left foot in, you put your left foot out, you put your left foot in and you shake it all about….” and so on…. we marched around in a circle in place “you do the Hokey pokey and you turn yourself around”… that’s what its all about! People would see us dancing in place and smile – we laughed a big laugh at the end and skied away!

We work on our skiing, mogul clinic most of the morning on Bear Trap and a few drills here and there to focus and improve our skills and then over and over 7 times in a row on Bear Trap – with the music blaring from the towers – girls were playing air guitar with their poles…. it was a really fun day!

Here is a photo from Kat’s house – I love the weathervane with the bicycle! We had such a great time last week, having snack with her family and going over our race results from the morning. Looking forward to the rest of the season with such a great group!

Side note:
I bought my bike trainer this week (a CycleOps Fluid Trainer) and hope to start my regime and bike mileage to get the base I need for Boston – – stay tuned!
