I came home from Rogla fully intending to return for the Tour de Ski. But I was so totally bagged from being away and on the go for over 2 months that my coaches and I decided the best thing would be to stay home in Canmore and do some excellent training. And that is what I'm doing. Luckily my teammates Sara, Devon, George, Alex and Ivan are all rocking out at the tour and doing Canada proud.
After a week of getting my energy back and enjoying the Christmas celebrations with my family and extended family I did a good week of volume training. It will be my last week of training big hours likely til the spring and I enjoyed doing tours on Cascade Fire Road in Banff, up at Mt. Shark in Kananaskis Country as well as a super fun ski tour on Christmas Eve at Black Prince.
Here are a few photos from what I consider the highlights of my last two weeks here in wonderful Canmore...
My dad Glen's nickname changed from Glenner to Glen-gnar because of the way he "shreds the gnar." Go Dad!
Playing guitars at the family sing-a-long with my uncles. My cousin Emily wowed us all when she busted out not only some great renditions of Taylor Swift songs but some she wrote herself. Impressive stuff for a 15 year old!
Ski touring in the mountains is one of my all-time favorite things to do. Great people, powder and good times. Me and my solid gold friend, Natalie.
Best of luck to everyone in the New Year...
