It really sucks to put yourself out there and be disappointed in the result/be confirmed about how slow you were feeling. But you got out there, and every effort makes you faster for the next one.
Glad you didn't re-injure!!!
Thanks Alex! Optimistic I'm still on the steep part of the fitness-get-back curve, hope it's true! But yeah, just gotta do it... =)
I’m amazed at you, Alison, Greg and Anton all handling serious injuries with such patience, wisdom and determination. You set a great example for other competitive orienteers, by the way. Especially juniors. :-)
Keep being awesome. We’re cheering for you!
