One Athlete's Mind
Since April 4th, I have been enjoying some great down time with my family and friends here in Penetanguishene. With a little over a week left in my stay, I'm looking forward to getting to see a few more people I haven't had a chance to see yet. Later this week I'll be getting together with some old high school friends, and this Thursday Sam (my sister) is coming home!!! I haven't seen Sam in over a year, so I am incredibly excited to see her again, and I think we're even heading to Canada's Wonderland on Sunday with my Dad for some fun family excitement! And on a more business-y note, with the arrival of May, it's time to shake up the body and get ready for what will be a great 2012 training season!
A couple weeks ago I received a phone call from the Head coach from my old team, the National Development Center (NDC) Thunder Bay team, informing me that I have been named to the 2012/2013 team. This means that next Thursday, May 10th, I'll be heading back up north to Thunder Bay to meet up with the rest of the team and kick off the training season with our first training camp starting May 15th. I'm guessing it will be during this camp that I'll receive the information outlining the rest of my training season, but I do know that the plan is to be back on the Haig Glacier in Alberta for a week in July, and then out in Canmore in late October for some early season on snow training. From what I've heard so far, this should be a great year of training with some great new and old training partners, awesome new coach and a very well designed training plan!
With training getting underway, I should be back to blogging on a more regular basis.
So until next time,
Happy new year!
