And they’re off!
The first regatta of the season took place this weekend…..unfortunately I wasn’t on the start line because of my stress fracture, but it was awesome to see the rest of the squad racing at last after all the hard work of winter training. There were some exciting performances and it looks like we’ve got an exciting season ahead.
I’m not going to lie, I was gutted I wasn’t racing, but, it was a great opportunity to stand back, watch and learn.
It’s made me all the more determined and hungry to get back into full training. I’ve been told if everything goes well over the next week then we can look at starting to krank things up the week after, so hopefully it won’t be long. An appeal was made to the International panel this week to give me permission to compete at the World Cup in May, even though I didn’t race at the selection regatta this weekend. I should find out later this week, so I’m keeping everything crossed!
It hasn’t been easy, but I do feel that the injury has been an opportunity. I’m mentally and physically much stronger, and I feel in a great position to start transferring that onto the water. As my coach said on Saturday….”Lets aim to get out and impress at the World Cup”
Too bloomin’ right!!!!:-)
