Time off.

Life as a full time athlete can be challenging when you cannot train. Unfortunately my back pain did not resolve itself as quickly as I hoped, so I am now on my 10th consecutive off day (which is very hard to do as a cross country athlete). I am definitely antsy to get back out to train, but as I have learned, it is important to come back carefully from an injury. My time off did give me a chance to get a lot of tasks done that I have been putting off. I was also able to explore my surrounding area near my house on the multiple walks I went on. Since walking is one thing I could do, I went on two walks a day, admiring the foliage and taking some photos.

On Thursday I headed home to see my parents before I headed out to Park City, Utah for a two week training camp! It was great to be home for a few days, resting and relaxing. On both Saturday and Sunday, I went on a 1.5h stroll with my parents around Prospect Hill Park (my home running trails) and around Walden Pond.

My favorite view from Prospect!
Walden Pond.


Today I flew out to Park City for the two week U.S. Ski Team training camp! I am really excited to be out here with the whole team, and back out in Park City! I was able to join in on the traditional Canadian Thanksgiving dinner with U.S. Ski Team athletes, which was really fun!
