This last month has been crazy. As most of you know, Team Canada has been training incredibly hard as we get ready for this years Pan American Games in Toronto and FINA World Championships in Russia.
We have changed our training plan quite dramatically, starting with increased strength and cardio sessions, flexibility sessions, as well as much more speed swimming. To add to the list, we have been testing our technical skills as well as learning new skills to keep us fit for the future. Last week, in just 3 days, we trained 36hrs.
It has been a great start to our season. Now that we are getting more fit, there are no signs of us “lightening up” heading into this year. The Olympics, though they seem far away, are just around the corner. Take into consideration that in just one year and 1 month from now we will be fighting to qualify for the Games! This is crunch time!!
Sending updates soon! Thank you for being patient, time is limited when you’re at the pool 12 hours a day! 🙂
This is a special day for our team!! 700 DAYS UNTIL THE 2016 OLYMPIC GAMES!
I know that seems far away, but it’s a step in the right direction!
Speaking about the right direction, we had an amazing practice today! This afternoon we did the hardest, most ridiculous routine workout we have ever done!! Not only did we survive, we created huge improvement in our routines. BLOOD, SWEAT, and TEARS were put into this workout (literally!!) and something this hard really showed us what our team is made of and how ready we are to face anything and everything!!!
700 days may still be far away, but our next chance to prove our worth as Team Canada is coming up much sooner. Our team will be performing at the World Cup in 26 days and we know that all of this hard work will pay off in our results. The World Cup in Quebec City is a great step towards Rio and we are very excited to make this journey into a reality!
Please keep supporting Team Canada and reading this blog for the inside scoop!! We are training hard to make our dreams and the dreams of young Canadians come true!
