Fun times in the summer!
So far this summer has been a blast, full of fun, a few major changes, and of course a ton of hard training! As I move on into the final weeks of June, here’s a little update from the summer so far. Sorry not many pictures, I’ll get around to that!
Of course after the season I took a little break, time to relax, recover and have some fun. During this time I had a small surgery on my sinuses; with the goal of opening my nasal cavity and hopefully be able to stave off the many sinus infections I seem to get. That surgery went well, and so far I’ve been plenty healthy!
Of course, in order to recover from surgery I had to be somewhere warm and sunny! California was again calling my name, and after a few weeks of sunburn, biking, and beach time, I was fully recovered and ready to get into training!
Our first training camp began again in Bend, Oregon, and so started the second major change: coaching. It has been a pleasure working with Armin the last few years. Indeed I would not be the same athlete without his shooting guidance the last 4 years. But it was his time to move on, and our new coach to take his place! Enter Jonas Johansson of Sweden. This tall Swedish brain has made his presence on the team felt immediately! With a new point of view, and new ideas, I’ve no doubt he can take our team to a new place!
At the conclusion of Bend camp, it was back home to Lake Placid to continue with normal dry land training. The addition of a new diet, and spacious apartment (complete with roommate!) have made the training and living situation much more bearable then the past. I’m excited to move on through the summer and see what gains I can make for next season!
Thanks for checking in. Hopefully I’ll have another update soon with a few more pictures!
