Gratefully I’m in Spain under the warm healing sun in my own bed, so I hope to recover the cold quick. And trying to convince myself that some forced ‘rest’ is what I needed. Now one day at the time, and then I slowly start to set my eyes on the next racing block – Lenzerheide and Andorra. Two great race locations that I look so much forward to!
I just have to get healthy again and then I can back into the groove :)
Sport is full of emotions, from ups to lows within the span of a week – it’s crazy, but the kinda crazy you can’t stop loving.
Reporting; Malene survived. Unbeaten? Victorious? Well, tried my best.
The past weeks has been real hectic for me, that’s why I didn’t take the time to update in here. I was finishing my semester, preparing for a world cup, racing a C1 and visiting the hospital. Oh, and travelled around Europe a couple of times in 1 week time. So yea hectic is the word.
But hey it’s Monday and here I am, still smiling and feeling almost... relieved.? My shoulders feel lighter and sitting on the plane now makes me excited for what the next couple of weeks of training will bring.
But the thing is when you have to ride in the gravel and grass all the time to overtake, you spent more energy and I felt the gas slipped out slowly doing the last 25 minutes. I was just holding on, until I crossed the finish line in 23rd position.
Proud that I never gave up, but frustrated, because I think I could have made it into that top 15 I wished for if I had been a little luckier. But hey that’s racing, and I just have to go faster in the Short Track to start further up on the grit!
But like I said in the beginning, I did it, I came through this packed week, and maybe I didn’t win it but I survived and I kept my head over water, actually enjoying it most of the time.
Now I’m SO excited to get back home to my casa Spain and ride and train hard without thinking about math, law or communication analysis 😂 let’s goooooo!
Reflect what you desire, become what you respect
