The first 2 weeks in Austria has flown by, I'm loving being back on snow, training with GB teammates and the Combined Services Disabled Ski Team again.
Team dynamics have changed as we are working with new coaches from Canada, Rip and Sue and I'm confident they will lead us to medals in Sochi 2014. Three older athletes have retired, but its fun to be training alongside Tim Farr and Kelly Gallagher again as well as the military guys and new visually impaired athlete Jade Etherington.
Thanks to CSDST and their military connections (in Blue) for a moving Remembrance Day 'service' at the top of the mountain.
Snow conditions on Stubai glacier suit training but there isn't any snow in the valley. It is very strange to be enjoying the sunshine, and apart from day cancelled due to wind, training is going well.
Our Strength and Conditioning coach, Nick Ward, spent the last week with us and gym training is paying off. Swiss ball rugby turned out to be quite a perilous recovery exercise - click on 'Back on Snow' for video link. As a team, we are fit and ready to compete (and have a good laugh!). Nobody was injured in the making of this video.
This season I aim to continue to win Europa Cup podiums and become World Cup qualified. Three weeks until the first Europa Cup Race!
