Not much going on in Calgary these days. I’m officially in “off-season”, it’s hard for me to do nothing! It’s helped that I’ve been sick for over a week, it’s forced me to take some time off. Time off is important, I know, I don’t want to start back up for next season and be burnt out before race season even starts.

Shaggy has been my partner in crime the last few weeks, he is staying at our house while my parents reno theirs. We go for long walks & hikes (since I can’t run, it’s the next best thing), we run errands, we fix things in/around the house (all the things I’ve let slide the last few months!), we take naps, we try new recipes, and we watch the hockey game together!

A couple more weeks until I can start up running again…I can’t wait!! It will be a SLOW build up–a few weeks of walk/running to be safe, in the meantime, I’ve been hitting the gym to work on my weaknesses and imbalances. I am determined to have an injury free season next year!
