Once again no snow in Hanover called for creative training. On Tuesday we had an indoor workout with a mix of spinning and erg speeds. Thursday called for a run or rollerski(!) in the pouring rain, which turned out to be quite fun!

On Friday the Carnival team headed off to Middlebury for the last carnival races of the season!

Middlebury and Rikert did an amazing job pulling together a race course after the rain on Thursday. They worked so hard to make the slush and ice skiable and we raced on a 5k loop for the first time in a while! The women raced a 5k skate on Saturday, mastering some icy downhill turns and steep pitches. The rest of the team came to Rikert for the day to ski and do a time trial, and made up an awesome cheering squad! Sunday was a 15k classic mass start and Cami and Ruff once again covered themselves in klister to give us some great skis. Many of us raced in t-shirts, and there was a post race team EISA picture and cooldown to end a great season of eastern racing!
Fun in the sun!
Girls getting fierce for the races
Now the team is gearing up for finals and a trip to Quebec to watch the World Cups! And best of luck to Corey, Mary, and Lydia as they head to Steamboat Springs, CO for NCAAs!
