Slowly but Surely!

Whew, almost done with my hard cycle!  Just like there are good days and bad days with anything, your body condition go through waves .  However, in order to gain that extra strength (or that extra burst of strength at the end of the routine), it’s especially important to push through the days when your body doesn’t feel like it wants to do its thing.

Anyway the training the last couple of weeks have been fairly tough, especially with the increase in volume (the number of routines per day).  The only thing that’s keeping me going is knowing that I’ll be that much stronger after my body recovers from all the stress I’ve been putting it through!  Just need to trust my coach and keep on pluggin’ away!

Even though I’m on a different boat than a lot of the other athletes, particularly with coming back from the ACL injury, I know that everyone is working hard and fighting through their own struggles.  Had a little chat the other day with former world champ, and good friend, Fabian Hambuechen.  Even though he’s healthy and good to go, he said he’s struggling from the lack of break from competing.  He’s been going non-stop for the last several months. Hearing that definitely makes me feel better, knowing that I’m not alone in this struggle.

It’s a couple more months until the USA Championships. Slowly but surely, I’m getting there!
