Scenes from this week

Today, we did some uphill double-pole intervals near Kincaid Park. 
Here's Andrew showing the technique he wants to see during the intervals.

These four kept the pace high from start to finish.
 Meanwhile, I spent yesterday flying all around the Bristol Bay area for work.  I've been in bigger airports than the one in South Naknek. But none smaller.

Near Igiugik

I got really mad at myself, and I still am, for getting in this plane and flying to Igiugik when it was so heavily loaded in the tail. That front wheel is there for a reason - it's supposed to be on the ground. The stall warning alarm was buzzing like an alarm clock and I was stuffed way in the back of the plane telling myself I should have let this airplane go without me. Probably only the third or fourth time I've ever been scared in an airplane (and I fly three or four times every week).  I didn't follow my own rule about not getting in airplanes when I have doubts. But everything turned out OK in the end.
