We started the day with a two mile warm up run before our breakfast feast. After breakfast we were fortunate to have an opportunity to see our women's Olympic biathlon team doing intervals on our course. We worked on our classic skiing for an hour before changing to skate skis for our biathlon clinic. Sam Dougherty from the Center once again did an awesome job of teaching our students how to shoot safely and accurately. After some practice we had a three team, three skier relay. The Dublin skiers found shooting after skiing a lap of the course quite difficult. Shout out to Aggie for shooting "clean" and hitting all of her targets 50 meters away and leading her relay team to victory.
This afternoon the team worked more on their classic skiing. We want to take advantage of good classic skiing whenever we can for it is always easier to skate when the conditions get rough. Many teams neglect their classic skills, but not Dublin! Tonight we are going to teach the students how to wax before they crash and rest for our final day.
