I am now back in Calgary for a few days.

I am having trouble keeping up with the pace here after being away for a few months. I don’t know how I ever managed to do work, family and training at the same time. my kids have changed so much in the last 3 months. the girls sound more like Sarah every day. they even have the ‘tone’ now. the boys learned to swim over night. nobody needs life jackets in the pool anymore.

My shoulder has made great progress in the last few days. I will do some standing work on the mat tomorrow. hopefully it wont get hurt again. I am cautiously optimistic that the shoulder will be close to 100% for my competition.

I have enjoyed the last few months and I wish the Olympics were not for another year so I could keep doing this more. the work we have done this year has started to pay dividends and I am now able to train at a higher level while continuing to recover so I can maintain that pace of training.
