The last training of the project Effective training and psychological approach to young cross-country skiers...
And here it is! The last training of the ETPA project started on Sunday morning. Melting came in the Saturday evening but the night was freezy, so there is not enough for skiing and the asphalt roads are with ice layer. Glaze ice is everywhere and nature draws amazing natural phenomena.
But what training? Athletes put on only running boots and poles and go for a Nordic run. The older run along the ridge to Zlata Studna and back (about one and half hour long run), the younger athletes absolved shorter (cca 1 hour long) run to ferrate and Görgei´s tunnel.
There are the old snow and ice on ankles on the ways, water from pools is flowing in the boots and during every steps runner are breaking down but it does not matter to anyone. Everybody fight as he can but nobody is racing so everybody can wait for the slower friends Neither of the older group made longer their trip and they run to Görgei´ s tunnel (map of the run).
Follow the last lunch, short farewell and happy and lucky travelling to home to all participants!
