We are starting a series on the NHNCA website where we ask a NH coach about their favorite workouts. Our first entry comes from Coach Nat Lucy at Kennett Middle School.
Name of workout: Fun Family Ski Training!
Purpose of Workout: Aerobic Capacity
Description: For a good endurance building workout on a hot day in August Coach Lucy likes to always plan to end his workouts at a good swimming hole. Taking advantage of the great opportunities in the Mt. Washington Valley, Coach Lucy takes is team on a long roller ski in Chatham, NH and ends with a short run to Emerald Pool. He coordinates ahead of time with families so that they can provide some late day snacks for the athletes. "A beautiful spot, family participation, tired and happy kids!" -Coach Lucy
Make sure to follow all safety protocols for roller skiing and swimming on your outing.
