The last two and a half months have been quite a push for me preparing for the upcoming racing season. I’ve been spending lots of time in the gym trying to get as fit as I can and really strengthen my hip so I don’t run into further problems down the road. It’s safe to say that all the work I’ve been doing has paid off. In the beginning of October we went to Saas Fee for 2 weeks and that was my first time back on snow in 6 months. It sure was a pleasant feeling to make my first turn of the camp pain free. It was great to be back with the team and catch up with everyone as well as have some good laughs over the duration of the camp. The conditions we had were pretty good which allowed the coaches and I to really pinpoint some key things in my skiing that we could focus on right away and in my mind there’s no better way to start the season. I wasn’t expecting too much from myself that camp. I was pleased with the skiing I did but I knew I still had a lot of work to do.
Pre-season has started back here in North America, so that means we’re back to Nakiska for some quality training before our first races. This following week we were supposed to be at Panorama for some GS and SL training but due to the lack of runs open that training block was cancelled. Instead, we are back to Nakiska for a week of tech and speed skiing. It will be my first time back on speed skis in quite some time now so I’m really looking forward to it and it will be a good warm up for fore running the ladies world cup at Lake Louise.
Until next time,
