Last week we had a trainingcamp in Hinterzarten together with the US Skiteam. It was a week with a lot of focus on skijumping, getting six sessions of jumping and two power-sessions in six days. As a bonus we also had a session with flight-training in a windtunnel in Emmen. That is always really cool, but surprizingly exhausting. My muscles were sore for three days afterwards when I went renewed it doing a new power program.
Getting a week of focus on the jumping part really served me well, since my performance on the hill has been varying a lot so far this summer. Altough I started out on a pretty low level I feel I made good progress throughout the week. Traveling home I am confident that my performance should be more stable on a higher level going ahead.
Now I will try to keep escalating the xc-training volume, to get ready for stepping it up with some high-intensity training again.
All in all a good week, with excelent accomodation. We stayed at the Erfurths Bergfried hotell which served good food, nice rooms and had a sweet wellness section with indoor- and outdoor swimming pools, jacuzzi and saunas. Definatley one of the better places I have stayed.
