It is the first Monday of September and what that means around here is that fall training is underway at Team Ineka. Our goal over the next few months is to run small teams of eight to ten dogs on our ATV starting at three or four miles a day and increasing as the dogs get in shape.
The plan is to build muscle, condition the team, work on leader training and see who works well together. This is time for the new dogs to shine and the older guys to teach the pups.
This is our favorite time of year. The leaves are changing, the air is getting cooler and the dogs are excited to do what they love.
Each training run that we do we track on an iPhone app called MapMyRide. Our plan is to run each team at least 100 miles a month until it is cold enough and we have adequate snow to run on the sleds.
We hope that you will follow us on the trail as we prepare for our 2013-2014 season.
