January: I spent a lot of time on the trainer, at the spin studio, and on the indoor track.
February: We embraced winter (and the coldest month ever) and went out skate skiing a few times. The plan for 2016 is to become a real x-country skier!
March: I went to Clermont, Florida for a week long training camp! I got to soak up the sunshine (aka thaw out) and completed my first 100+ kilometer bike ride.
April: Training and life continued as I turned 29.
May: The Ottawa Race Weekend brought a huge 10k PR! It was also my first chance to rep Team Coeur! I also spent a few weekends training up at Mont Tremblant.
June: I was diagnosed with a stress fracture, my first official sports injury of my career. It was a challenging month mentally and physically. However, June also included the first race of the season, and even though I couldn't finish the race, I had an amazing time in Mont Tremblant with my tri family!
September: Worlds in Chicago was the highlight of my season. It was an incredible experience to represent Canada in an international event. My race went well and I had a great time with my mom, grandma, and friends!
October: I chilled out a lot and took pretty much the entire month off of training. I got to visit Chicago again for a dear friend's surprise 30th birthday party.
November: Magali Tisseyre and Eric Lagerstrom came to hang out with us at the OTC Coaching Clinic! And I mostly continued my off season.
My 2015 was a year of lessons - particularly in patience - and I feel like I grew a lot as a person and athlete. There are a lot of amazing things on the horizon for 2016 though, so I'm happy to be turning the page to a new year and new adventures. Wishing you a wonderful last few days of 2015 and a happy, exciting year, full of new challenges and opportunities in 2016!
