These past 5 weeks my motto has been efficiency, not just in one area of life, but all of them!
The combination of feeling 100% healthy, being able to train at full capacity and feel good, and being focused on being efficient has made me feel more fit than I have in a while. One of my favorite days on the week is Sunday because our team does a 3-4 hour run/hike on a different hiking trail every Sunday. Who knew that doing 3-4 hour runs on hiking trails every weekend makes running on normal trails feel like a piece of cake?! We have had an unlucky streak with weather, managing to end up in the clouds at every summit along our adventure runs. However, we have been lucky to have no rain (except for a little hail) and cool temperatures that are perfect for long runs.
A few weeks ago I also got to see my SMS teammates when we held a free clinic for kids in Hanover area. We had a great turnout and it was cool to see how enthusiastic the young skiers are in the Hanover area!
Now I am resting up at home for a few days before I head out to Park City, UT for a U.S. Ski Team training camp for two weeks. I am hoping that if I am efficient, I can manage missing two weeks of classes!
I hope to post my next update after my training camp in two weeks!
