Since I will no longer be on campus at Brock (☹) I had to find a new weight trainer that I could start working with in the off season. Back in May I went into the Goodlife gym and met a trainer named Gurpreet. She is very enthusiastic and I am very excited to get to work with her. She was amazing and came to the races in Ottawa to watch, meet Coach Ken and my teammates, and to learn some more about racing and the type of training I will need to be doing.
Now we are on the countdown to leaving for World Championships (2 days to be exact!!) I will have 1 more training session tomorrow and then will be packing up Pink Panther and getting ready to compete in my third World Championships. Curtis, Isaiah, and Austin are all going to be there as well representing Canada. They have already flown there and we will meet up with them when we get there. These races will be taking place in the same stadium as the London 2012 Paralympic Games so I am excited to be back there and to relive some amazing memories from then. My mom, aunt Karen, dad and sister will be there to watch. My sister, Jacqui, is actually coming as our accredited official Massage Therapist, which is extremely exciting!!
My races at present are scheduled for (all UK times):
- July 15: 200m final - 21:41
- July 18: 400m semi-final - 12:40
- July 19: 400m final - 21:12
- July 23: 100m semi-final - 11:00
100m final - 12:45
800m final - 18:51
After world's we will be going on a family trip around Ireland! Will be the first trip in a long time where I don't need to bring the Pink Panther!
London 2017 here we come!!
