LNR Girls Camp Take 2

In mid June I joined my Club Loppet Nordic Racing (LNR) for their second training camp of the year (here is a link to our first camp re-cap LNR Girlz Camp: Adventure Weekend) up in Cable, WI. It's amazing to be a part of such a strong club. The camps have become so popular that this year we spit up the Boys and Girls and we still had 39 Girls attend the camp ranging in age from 13 to 19. 

Morning Run with the crew
As an extra incentive to make sure everyone is on time, those who are late have to do a dance for the entire group.  If you are late on Day 2, the dance is posted to Facebook.

With everyone on time we decided to do a group dance and warm up

Wet grass didn't keep us from our morning drills, we simple adapted to a large group barre line on the stairs!

The girls looking good!

Strong Ladies
We used two different 5 minute routes up the hill to help keep our 8 intervals more interesting.

We have a blast training as a big group!  Abbie is just finishing up a PG year with LNR before heading to Dartmouth this Fall.  
Pull ups are one of my favorite exercises and many of the girls stated improving at pullups was a big goal of theirs this season.

You can do a lot of strength exercises with just the equipment at your local playground
