Today marks Team Canada’s first day back to the pool after our short, yet relaxing days off for the Holidays. There are only a few days left in December before we embark on our last 2 months to the Olympic Qualifier! Hard to believe time has gone by this quickly.
I had such a fantastic time with family and friends out West. Though I don’t get to travel back home very often now-a-days, it always feels as if I never left. I’ve gotta say, it’s so nice to be a little bit spoiled and taken care of by my parents again 😉
Now that we are back to training, we didn’t waste any time getting back into the thick of it!! We came back exactly where we left off and are taking the appropriate steps to move forward towards our goals. I hope that the rest we took will give us an extra jolt of energy to get through our January training program… From there it will be about just making the final adjustments as well as attempting to perfect our programs!
Hope everyone is enjoying their family time! It is so important to get in as much as you can because, as I know too well, you will miss it once it’s gone!! Happy Holiday’s and a Happy New Year to all!
I hope you are all enjoying a fantastic day with friends and family! It has been a very cold week here in the West, let’s just say I was getting used to the unusually warm weather in Montreal… Visiting family and friends has been a bit of a shock to my system, as I don’t get to see them as often as I would like!
In the days leading up to our VERY traditional family Christmas, my parents, the BF and I travelled to BC to take in some of the fresh mountain air! We went snowshoeing, enjoying the beautiful Rocky Mountain atmosphere as well as taking advantage of Hot Springs and Spa facilities (because that’s what the holidays are about!)
Of course our trip was short because we had to be back to spend the day with the family on the 24th! We had such a fantastic time sharing stories, laughing with each other and most importantly, catching up with all the family gossip! 😉
Knowing how blessed I feel to be able to spend some quality time with the people I love, I wish you all the best this Holiday Season! Have fun, drink lots of egg nog and stay toasty!!
We’re done out last competition of 2014!!!! None of us thought this day would come. We have been working so hard to produce the best routines possible out of the time frame we had to make “Trophy Worthy” performances, causing the swims to just FLEW by!!
In overall standings, Canada came 3rd. We were aiming for higher ( of course ) but we are happy with the performances we gave considering certain circumstances. We had a ton of fun and are proud to finish the year with these swims.
Now it’s time for a much needed holiday with our families in our separate cities!!! Can not wait to finally see my friends and family again! Happy holidays from Team Canada!!
Thank you for your love and support this past year, we feed off of your energy and are hoping to give you more to look forward to in the future!!
