Even though my foot has been an annoyance I have been able to train consistently. A month of roller skiing and cycling got quite repetitive, but I got through it. Now I have had a short week break from intense training, and I’m ready to go again!
Weather has been chilly and they have started to put old snow from last year on the track. Tyumen has recently built a cooler track, it is a roller-ski track that has antifreeze running through it so that the snow doesn’t melt due to warm temperatures, this lets athletes train on snow early without waiting for cold conditions for natural or artificial snow. Although the track is not quite ready, all the athletes are eager to get skiing.
I am excited to have another month of good training! Lucy and Daniel will join me tomorrow so I will have some company in training. I have slowly started running on my foot, but definitely it is still a little sore, also my legs cramp up after 50 minutes of running due to the lack of cross training. My legs have forgotten how to run and contract quickly, but I will fix that soon.
This season will be long and exciting hopefully everything goes to plan. These are the events I will be competing in.
