We made a 10 mile extension to our training trail last week and this week we made a 12 mile extension. We ran the Open Team 10 miles on Monday and then a 10 mile on Wednesday. We finished this weeks training with a 12 mile run on Thursday. On Monday, Wednesday and Thursday we ran the 6 dog racing team with 6 other dogs to make a 12 dog team. These dogs ran three 4.5 mile training runs.
This week, we moved Yaluk into the Open Team and Kira back for the 6 dog team. In training this week, we gave Tepeu and Kira some time at lead.
Yaluk did a great job running in the Open Team and will be there for the race at St. Luc.
Cosmos and Sophie got out Skijoring with Cecile. Cosmos for 4.5 miles and Sophie for 3 miles.
On Sunday, Nicky went to his new home with my neighbor Lucy. This is a wonderful place for Nicky as he will get a lot of one on one attention.
We received some more snow at the first of the week and on Friday, we shoveled the snow off the roof of the chalet for the second time this season.
We made a decision not to go to the race at L'Epiphanie this weekend due to the fact that the race would have Head-on Passing because a lack of snow in the fields. This is just a personal preference as I do not enjoy this type of race.
Until next week......
