Kincaid Kold

Today the team started preparing for the the first races of the season this weekend in Fairbanks, where the temperature is forecast to be minus one thousand degrees, which is typical for this time of year in Fairbanks.  To get ready, we went out and did some skating intervals at +9 degrees (F) at Kincaid Park this morning.  I really enjoyed this workout today, maybe because I skipped the hardest interval with the excuse that I needed to film the team so they could see video of their skiing technique. (An experienced coach knows when and how to use the most appropriate excuses for each situation.) 
Anyway, there's very short, very amateur video of the women at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0xtqP3gGMvw and the men at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Errs2wk965Q

During the cool-down, I took these pictures:
