Work It Out

One week into our summer training in Calgary and the Women’s Alpine Ski Team has completed all fitness tests and physical and medical assessments. If we didn’t have a clue what was going on with our bodies beforehand, we basically have a GPS now. I was impressed with how thoroughly we analyzed our bodies and am very curious to go over the results in the next week. There were issues I could feel but could never seem to find a way to communicate appropriately, that now have a diagnosis and a solution. We did bike tests, biodex tests, force plates test, etc. What was most interesting was that we had electrodes on our legs that gathered graph-able information indicating when, where and for how long each muscle fired during certain movements. Very cool!

At the end of the week Eve Routhier, Larisa Yurkiw and I joined some of Calgary’s best athletes for Henry Burris’All Star Weekend Benefit for Big Brothers and Big Sisters for Calgary. It was an incredible evening supporting a great cause!

I’m looking forward to this next week getting back in the gym. I am NOT looking forward to the pain the first week always brings to the body… or any stairs that I will have to do during that time, hah!
