When training is in full swing, it is hard to fit in some of the other things I really enjoy doing because they happen to be other sports that require energy and time that I cannot spare. However, I am still on hold for any real ski training due to an unknown illness so I have been embracing the coach’s/doctor’s instruction to do some form of light activity every day. Normally, you would think if I can only do a little activity every day then I would choose to do skiing (which I have been for the most part). However, the last few days I have decided to do the other fun things I really enjoy: rock climbing, beach volleyball, and surfing.
I reached a point where I needed to take a step back from thinking about when I am going to be able to train again and just have fun…no heart rate monitor, no logging the hours, no training plan, just pure enjoyment of the outdoors and good company! I have cherished the time I have spent with my close friends and family over the past week that I normally don’t get to.
Now after my mental vacation, I am ready to do what I can to get me back to training as soon as possible!
