American Birkebeiner 50km Skate "No Time" Training Plan
Matti RoweAll plans by this Coach
The American Birkebeiner - the only race that matters in the North American cross country racing calendar. Maybe you've done it before. Maybe all your friends have and you finally lost that bet and you'll be toeing the line with them in February. Either way, you're scared, because you have barely any time to train. You're not in college anymore - you've got a family, or a high-stress job, and you know in your heart that 30 minutes of cardio on the elliptical 3 times per week and a few pushups isn't going to cut it.
The 2019 American Birkebeiner Skate No Time Training Plan will get you across the line, maybe even standing. It's simple, effective, straightforward workouts that will increase your aerobic capacity, get your technique dialed, and even allows for beers.
You won't find BS in this plan, just Badass workouts that make the most of your precious time. You don't need a fancy watch, you don't need to abandon your social life, you just need a can-do attitude. But you already have that - you're a cross-country skier
Now go knock out some workouts. Before you'll know it you'll be waiting for your friends at the finish line in Hayward sipping Wisconsin's finest.
