Swix Athletes Talk Off Season Q & A  : Sophie Caldwell, Sadie Bjornsen, Jessie Diggings, Andy Newell and Erika Flowers talk spring and non serious training.

Sophie Caldwell

Q: What are your plans for the off season? Any travel?

 A: I will be spending most of my off season in the west! For me, April is a time to find a balance of rest and adventuring in the mountains. This will involve some back country skiing, mountain biking, and down time.

 Q: How much training takes place in these months? What do you do to be fit?

A: I will still be active most days, but I like to wake up each day and do what I feel like doing. If I'm exhausted, I don't feel the need to do any physical activity, but if I'm feeling up for it, I like to go for an adventure without a heart rate monitor or any of the other gear we might usually use for training. I enjoy getting outside purely because I love being outside instead of doing it for training. That said, I will still keep track of the amount of activity I'm doing to make sure I don't overdo it and get enough recovery time.

 Q: Independent of vacation, what do you indulge in during these months that doesn't happen otherwise? (Foods? Drinks? Motorcycle racing?)

 A: Ha! I would say the food I eat is pretty similar to what I eat during the training season. Well, maybe a little more junk food, but I still try to eat a lot and eat well because whether I'm being active or recovering, my body is working hard. A few more drinks are probably consumed during the spring time because hey, a beer always tastes better on top of a mountain! 

Sadie Bjornsen

 Q: What are your plans for the off season? Any travel?

A: First the beach for some true rest and recovery. Following that, I am headed back to AK for the amazing spring adventure season. Backcountry skiing, alpine skiing, nordic skiing.... all the above!

Q: How much training takes place in these months? What do you do to be fit?

A: For the first two weeks, nothing. I take this time to heal any sort of lingering fatigue or illness (since I was sick at the end of the season). I use these two weeks to crave activity again. Then, after that I try to start small runs every day. I have a nasty history with injury, so I try to use the spring to slowly introduce my tendons and muscles to running again. After my two weeks of "full recovery", the following three weeks are active fun. All the social activity that I don't have time for during structured months, I indulge in. I enjoy skis with my friends, I sign up for huge exhausting adventures, and I let my heart a little free. Alaska has been so much fun for me every single spring.

Q: Independent of vacation, what do you indulge in during these months that doesn't happen otherwise? (Foods? Drinks? Motorcycle racing?)

 A: I indulge in all the things I have been dreaming about throughout the season. A cold beer in the sun, chips for lunch, and ice cream for dinner. These are all habits I do my best to avoid, or limit during training and racing season, so I truly enjoy the few weeks of letting loose!

Jessie Diggins

Q:What are your plans for the off season? Any travel?

A: I was in Hawaii (Oahu) with one of my best friends, Danielle! I’ve attached some fun photos from hikes that we went on. I also spent a lot of time at the beach surfing and swimming and snorkeling!

 I’m now headed to Boston for some serious rest and down-time with no activity for a week so my body can fully repair itself after a long season with a lot of racing!

 Q: How much training takes place in these months? What do you do to be fit?

 A: I try not to train AT ALL for at least one week, and the rest of my time off is spent doing whatever I feel like doing that day! That might be nothing if I’m tired, and I respect my body and take care of it. Or it might include swimming, surfing, hiking, or taking dance classes in Boston! I don’t worry about maintaining fitness - that comes back so quickly each spring that it’s more important for me to be 100% physically and mentally rested so I can enter each new season excited to train and not burnt out in any way.

 Q: Independent of vacation, what do you indulge in during these months that doesn't happen otherwise? (Foods? Drinks? Motorcycle racing?)

 A: I indulge in warm places that I can never travel to during the race season (like Hawaii!) time with my family and boyfriend that I also can’t get during the race season, and time near the ocean!

Reese Hanneman

 Q:What are your plans for the off season? Any travel?

A: I always have a really hard time traveling in the springtime because it is the best part of the year here in Alaska. If I could have the rest of the 10 months be like this... I would. How could you skip it?? Maybe I'll go somewhere tropical when its 35 and raining this fall.

 Q: How much training takes place in these months? What do you do to be fit?

A: Depends what you call "training"... haha. I don't have any plan and any workouts I do aren't for any specific purpose. Basically, I live like a weekend warrior for a while.

 Q: Independent of vacation, what do you indulge in during these months that doesn't happen otherwise? (Foods? Drinks? Motorcycle racing?)

 A: I love snowmachining the Alaska range with my brother Logan... It's an incredible way to explore deep into the mountains, far deeper than you could ever get backcountry skiing. I keep meaning to wear my heart rate monitor, so I can prove that its as good of a workout as it feels. Talk about full body exhaustion and soreness.

Andrew Newell

 Q:What are your plans for the off season? Any travel?

 A: My plan for the off season is to spend some time with Erika mostly out west in Montana and Colorado. We both have been getting into doing a lot more backcountry skiing the past few years so this spring we finally set aside some time to take a 3 day AIARE certification course together.  And since this spring we took a break from heading south for surfing we have been adventuring in the mountains around Bozeman a lot more.

 Q: How much training takes place in these months? What do you do to be fit?

A: When backcountry skiing and surfing it can actually be easy to almost train too much this time of year. I basically think of April as a time to have fun and let your body reset for 3-4 weeks before we start training again May1st. By having fun in the mountains it can be easy to get in 6-10 hours of activity in a week without even trying. We will throw in a few runs and gym sessions to get the muscles ready for real training, otherwise we hit the first week of May and can't walk from soreness.

Q: Independent of vacation, what do you indulge in during these months that doesn't happen otherwise? (Foods? Drinks? Motorcycle racing?)

 A: If I can use a big word for a hot sec... 'super-compesation' needs to happen on a macro scale:) Or in other words, you've gotta get out of shape to get into good shape. Thats my rationale and justification for indulging during the month of April. We try to get in all the burgers and Pizza and all that good stuff that you can be craving after spending 5 months in Europe each wither. This is also the one time of year we don't have to prioritize training over hanging with friends so there is no excuse not to joining them for drinks in town. There are a lot of good breweries in Bozeman by the way! Who knew. All it takes is about a week or two of that and I'm ready to get back on the straight and narrow and just train. I think we athletes take for granted how great it feels to be in good shape.

Ericka Flowers

Q: What are your plans for the off season? Any travel?

A: I’m planning to spend most of the off season at home in Bozeman, Montana with Andy. We have a quick trip to Colorado for an AAIRE I Avalanche Course but otherwise will be adventuring in the mountains around Bozeman and working on some wedding planning prep before we get into full training mode. I’m also excited to  head to the California coast for a bachelorette weekend at the end of the month!

Q: How much training takes place in these months? What do you do to be fit?

A: I won’t really think too much about training until the end of the month. Mostly I will do all of those things I can’t do when we are in season…backcountry ski, untimed adventures in the mountains without a heart rate monitor, run running races around town and any other active adventures with friends. I will definitely start getting into the gym during the last few weeks in April but most of my other “training” revolves around spending time with friends and family and not worrying about hours or intensity of activity.

Q: Independent of vacation, what do you indulge in during these months that doesn't happen otherwise? (Foods? Drinks? Motorcycle racing?)

A: I think I just indulge in the opportunity to not think so much about what I am eating or doing. Some days that means waking up early to go ski in the mountains while noshing on cinnamon rolls and coffee in the car and other days it means sleeping in and meeting up with friends later
