The importance of recovery
Sprint sessions, weightlifting, mental preparation and nutrition. Each factor plays a vital role in generating success on the track. To a high performance athlete this means trying to gain an edge on your competitors, and ultimately pushing the body to its limits.
In November of 2014 I received hip surgery. My limits had been hard-pressed for the last couple years and my body finally broke down. It was a bit of a gamble to go forward with the procedure, as there is no guarantee on the outcome on something like this. The decision made me realize that in order to get back on track, I would need to be diligent in the things I can control.
In an effort to refocus and take control, I connected with a company that aligned with my core values and helped supplement my daily nutritional intake. As an athlete ambassador for Hammer Nutrition Canada, I am excited to share my journey to recovery, as I get back on track.
