Lots of short loops in autumn,
then longer and longer trips to the forest.
Our dogs run every week 2-4 times.
Beginning of March:
After the trip to Sweden Mora and Miilu first needed rest.
Soon after that came really cold weather. There was more than -30 degrees every night.
We had to take the dogs inside (to the stable) every night for a week and feed them more so that they would not loose weight.
Better weather and nice runs! We had some friends visiting and all our dogs worked to give them nice and slow sleigh rides. I also packed my racing team to my car and went for a very fast ride in different place than usual, to practice travelling, packing and starting on my own. That was like a simulation of the real day of the race.
I'm only going to drive one loop on wednesday. Something like 10 kilometers with brake on - quite slowly. For the rest of the week I let my racing team rest and build energy. Maybe I let them run 5 minutes free on friday - just to keep then relaxed and to have a nice contact with them.
