*Alayna checking in
The team is back from a two week training camp in Lake Placid, NY and boy am I ready for an easy week! This time of year, all of our training plans start to diverge and we keep Coach Pat on his toes even more than usual. For myself, it’s been a while since I took a total easy week to help absorb all of the work we’ve been putting in so I’ve been enjoying my rest since camp.
While in Lake Placid, the SMS T2 team was fortunate enough to join the US Ski Team for a solid block of training. The national team was staying in a house together while the rest of us got an apartment right downtown. I thought this was nice because between training sessions or during off afternoons we were able to walk around, check out the town and check out the miracle on ice venue (Ian was particularly excited about this part). We also had our junior, Will Koch, and a GMVS junior, Brian Bushey, join us in the apartment which added some young blood to the mix. It’s super cool when we can help build the next generation of skiers!
