Day 2 started with a nice 5K trail-run before breakfast, guided by Christian, co-owner of the Cross , tri-athlete and ultra runner.
After breakfast, we taught a snatch session to the rest of the athletes. Samantha Briggs and Numi will for sure soon be able to break their current PR!
After the snatch session, we did some squat cleans and heavy back squatting – and both PR’ed on our 4 rep max!
After lunch, some of the athletes went for some open water swimming in the lake next to the Cross – approx 3,5 km. (and hard for quite a few)!!!!!
In the evening, we did a team workout – boys vs girls. The boys (Numi, Bert, Jan, Darren) finished second in 18:17, but the girls (Sarah, Sam, Elin, Ditte) won a safe victory in 15:27 !!!
