Cross country skiing sessions.

I am going to run half marathon in April in Madrid (in three months). Since snow is plentyfull here in Norway now, I plan to substitite some of the running sessions of the 100 day plan (also going to run the long runs shorter and faster).
Which sessions do you think is best to do as cross country skiing?
Could i perform them as stated in your plan or do I need to change them? (distanse will need to increase somewhat I assume)


Hi Geir and thanks for your question.

YES, you can substitute some sessions, preferably the medium long ones (45 min +/- intervals) AND you can increase these to 60+ minutes due to the less impact on the legs. It is a great way to vary your training during this time a year, with the current weather situation.

I wish you all the best,
