Winter is here and the ski season is kicking off in Canada! I’ve been busy as usual this year with both skiing and school, and can’t wait for the racing to begin.
These past few months of training have been pretty incredible.
I got to do two separate training camps at locations that were new to me. In September, I had a camp with my team in Kelowna. This was perfect because we got in a final dose of summer sunshine before the cold season. As a bonus, I also got to visit Michelle, Indra and the Rancho team at the Armstrong facilities on the drive to the training camp!
It was super cool to get a behind-the-scenes view of how the process works, and my visit definitely gave me an appreciation for all the hard work the Rancho team puts into getting us the best quality products.
In October, I went with the National Team to Mammoth Lakes, California, for our final camp of the year. This was my first time in California, and I was blown away by the amazing views and training locations! Going to new places like this with amazing teammates makes my “job” as an athlete seem pretty great.
Since then, I’ve been in Canmore, doing the final training block before race season. Coming up, I’ve got some races in Silver Star and then Whistler, BC, where I’ll be toeing the line with many of the best skiers from Canada and the USA. After that, I’ll be going home to Athabasca for Christmas!
Outside of skiing, I’ve been busy with school, where I’m working towards my psychology undergrad through Athabasca University. Being both a student and an athlete means my schedule tends to be pretty packed; a typical day for me looks something like this:
To fit in both homework and training every day, I have to be pretty efficient with my time. As an athlete, I need to be fuelling my body with nutritious, whole foods as much as I can to optimize recovery and allow me to train even more! Today, I want to share with you a few food “hacks” I use to incorporate those precious nutrients into my daily eating habits in a simple, quick ways:
I have a lot of fun discovering new and simple ways to incorporate dried fruits, nuts and seeds into my daily routine. I love how eating nutrient-rich foods helps me recover even better from training. Race season, here I come!
