  • Sunday 8th August Training Session - This week was a focus on quicker, almost race like, pace. The session was 6, 4, 2 laps repeated twice with a longer rest between the intervals sets. Also between each interval set we did some left leg hangs in the middle of the ice. To finish off we did a mixed relay. Ice conditions were ok and the ice held well for the session. Technique on the faster sprints was low, hip into corner and thinking about the set up going into the bend. another good session with 2 large ability groups.
