Sick day #2 on the couch... Didn't want to chance starting off 2016 with a bang; I believe in a gradual build up to prevent burnout ๐Ÿ˜œ#happynewyear #rio2016

Started parking off campus and taking the 15min walk to training instead. I made the decision so I would save on parking expenses, but I've found it has helped to slow my mornings down and provide the space to transition into athlete mode. Walking has also been a great way to get my gluts firing before training, and bonus- a chance to listen to my favourite podcasts! #athletelife #RoadToRio #walking #training #wellbeing

This Sunday from 10-12pm I'll be at #dinos track meet at the Jack Simpson #UofC #yyc. I'll be "selling" (accepting donations) for my new (tags still on!) + lightly used #Nike + Canada gear (spikes, clothes, sunglasses, hats, uniforms, bags, etc). Funds go towards my #rio2016 training camp expenses and 10% to "The University of Gramantik" training group to cover coach's expenses. What ever is not sold will be donated. Size women S/M, shoes 8 (6.5 men). Good timing for Xmas presents and can request autographed card ๐Ÿ‘Š

Great visit with the fam at @growcalgary yesterday. Founder Paul Hughes (in pic with Anika) and volunteers are doing an amazing job growing fresh food for the Calgary Food Bank. Proud to be the first Food Access Ambassador; looking forward to getting my hands dirty this harvest!

This downtime to rest my right Achilles has doubled as time to address my left ankle. Today was the day I was suppose to fly out to Athletics Canada's pre-Worlds camp, but now I'm on the right path to recovery after arthroscopic surgery today in London Ontario.
