Despite the crazy weather, we were able to get in 3 days of training on the sled. We cut back the teams to 2 teams of 8 dogs each. We ran on Monday, Thursday & Saturday for runs of 10 miles each. The dogs handled the increased mileage without any problems and even turned in two of the best runs, I have had so far, with the Sprint Dogs over this 10 mile trail.
I am really enjoying running with the new Danler Sprint Sled. It handles like a dream!
However, poor snow conditions & water on the lake caused the cancellation of the race in Saint Michel des Saints for the second year in a row.
Even though we are only 36 km from Saint Michel, there can be a big differences in snow conditions. The conditions here were good enough to attract over 500 sled dogs being run up here on both Saturday & Sunday. It was a little crazy & fun.
There is a new YouTube Video on the Training Page with highlites of Thursday, training runs.
Until next week......
