It has been a busy three months of travelling, training and racing post my Around the Bay 30km race in late March.
The weeks have included the Ottawa Race Weekend 10km, Toronto Challenge 5km, three 1500m races around Ontario (Toronto, London, Guelph) and a 3000m race at York University.
The goal is to get faster and stronger on the track but also reinvigorated by the speed and change in training. When it comes time to focus on and return to the longer races, hopefully I've trained my body to find another gear. It has been a great adventure with a few track races remaining. I'm loving the challenge and the support from my teammates and coach.
Here is a quick look at what the past few months have been like. My motto...be fast.
