Summertime and the livings easy....

So I spent two weeks in the middle of June training and working in Canmore.  My goal for my training has been to increase my core stability, my quickness and keep strong.  Being able to go to Canmore and spend a few weeks training with the National Team girls (and having the gym soo close by) was great!!  Unfortunately when I returned home I immediately got a wicked cold and had to take a few days off.  NOT my favourite way to spend my days- lying on the couch with a box of tissues and tea.  Yesterday I left for Mt. Hood.  I am here on-snow training with the Mens BC ski Team.  It is always great to train with them as they are all good skiers who push me to ski my best all the time.  Luckily, I started to feel better the day before I left.  Lets hope that is the last bit of "sick" I'll see for a while.  We are going to be here training for ten days straight.  The weather looks like it will hold so the plan is 5 days of gs-progressing from sliding drills to timing in gates followed by 5 days of slalom-same progression.  It is a great opportunity to get my stuff together in GS and follow it up with skiing my favourite-SLALOM!!  Im looking forward to ripping up on my slalom skis which I haven't been on since the end of the season.

Hope everyone is having a great summer!!
