"Slalom" 

Set up a course in a parking lot or driveway with cones or any object, placing 8-10 of them in a straight line.

1 Run is equal to a Roundtrip

Runs 1-5 at a medium pace (under 10mph):  Cones are 4ft. Apart 

Runs 6-10 at a faster pace (10-15mph):  Cones are 4ft. Apart

Runs 11-15 at a medium pace (under 10mph):  Cones are 3ft. Apart

Runs 16-20 at a faster pace (10-15mph):  Cones are 3ft. Apart

Runs 21-25 at a medium pace (under 10mph):  Cones are 2ft. Apart

Runs 26-30 at a faster pace (10-15mph):  Cones are 2ft. Apart

*Use a speed in each round you are comfortable with.

The goal of this WOD is to fine tune your frontside/backside transition on the mountain making the transition from front to back faster and more compact.   Preparing you for more technically steep terrain where quick traversing between the two is paramount.

"Ridin'"

Stopping as least you can to see how your endurance is building up.

15 Mile Ride (off-road, paved, carve, etc.)

The goal here is to trigger and work your oxidative training in order to build up endurance on long, demanding rides where leg fatigue is at its peak.  This plays into scoring more quality runs on the mountain.

"Low Cruisin'"

Knees should be bent around 3/4 from your regular stance to stimulate the quads giving you a "burning" sensation.

- Cruise 1 Mile with Knees Bent 

- Rest 2 Minutes

- Cruise 1 Mile with Knees Bent

- Rest 2 Minutes

- Cruise 1 Mile with Knees Bent

- Rest 2 Minutes

- Cruise 1 Mile with Knees Bent

- Cruise 1 Mile with Knees Bent

The stimulus is to put your quads through a consistent burn to build up your endurance threshold for long runs on the hill.  This will activate your slow twitch muscle fibers for those endurance cruise runs on the mountain.
