Yes sir. that’s right. one little biathlete.
Susan and I spent the rest of the week in Vermont with Patrick and Bjorn (yep thats a 1:1 coach athlete ratio) training…ok trying to train. We made it through the week. One day at a time. Although I spent a good portion of the week sleeping some good training still got done. Lots of shooting, a hike on Mt. Mansfield, and lots and lots of blueberries were the highlights of the week. Oh yeah and the Farmhouse’s burger and fries, to die for!
I’ve been back in Lake Placid for a week now and its been great. The weather is fantastic. I’m finally healthy and training again at full strength! During skate intervals this morning I felt like I could actually ski…quickly!
Last sunday I said goodbye to my team mates headed off to Europe and I headed back into the training center. One little biathlete left in placid. Lucky for me some of the guys are coming back from home in the next couple of days…so perhaps I won’t look so lost or perhaps out of place with some of my “own kind” bopping around.
Here’s a few pictures from our little hike in overcast Vermont!
