Different training sessions are planned by each coach, and vary depending on age group. The senior group may have a hill session one day, followed by a parlauf or some speed work in the following session. Other variations are relays, handicaps, pylon/lamppost sessions, and strides, with a variety of strength, speed and endurance training incorporated within the sessions.
