Everyone knows when something is wrong with an athlete by a sudden pause in blogging. There is no hiding it's just it feels like there is nothing to write about. I am not going to lie, I'm in a bit of a rough patch. I worked so hard and had a flawless winter but the past few weeks haven't really gone as planned. My concussion took a while to heal...I'm not sure if heal is even the right word here. Once it did I was super excited and motivated and after a few days of easy training I was itching to really get back into it. I've had many little bumps in the road with my body not really used to this hard training stuff. After 2 bad crashes and a few weeks of nothing my body is freaking out a bit so it feels like a bit of 2 steps forward 1 step back...or honestly 1 step forward, 2 steps back at times! I also woke up with a cold on saturday just another little road block. All minor things, but strung together equals not an ideal amount of time off hard training. I know the season is long and the enormous base I built will do me good but it's getting frustrating. Now my task is to not get overly impatient like I usually do. Wish me luck!! I'll have to put my energy into cheering for the Canucks!
