Weekly Update #1

If you are new to my blog welcome! If you were a reader of my old blog, welcome back!

I’m writing to you from  beautiful (so far, we only arrived a few hours ago!) Budapest, Hungary, where our team travelled to today for a training camp. We’re here for the next two weeks and will be accomplishing a ton of base work as we start to ramp up for the 2012-13 season.

But since this is a weekly update, I’ll be looking back at last week. This past week was a fairly relaxed one as we rested up for the travel to Budapest and the upcoming camp. And a good thing too! I finished up a hard block of training with a little trip out west to attend the marriage of two of my good friends and teammates, Gabby Waddell and Tyler Derraugh. It was a beautiful ceremony and an awesome reception followed. It was great to see some familiar faces from the years I spent in Calgary and celebrate Ty and Gabby’s special day with them.

Now, having arrived in Budapest after a long travel day that went by surprisingly fast and essentially seamlessly (no lost bags, long layovers etc), I’m looking forward to the camp. I asked Derrick (Campbell, my coach) about what to expect for the next two weeks. He said that we should expect to cry on the inside and the outside. Hmmm…
