The last few days have been pretty tough. The day after the big shed clean out I felt terrible. I was so tired and over trained, I really didn’t want to do anything which is frustrating for me because I always want to train. It didn’t matter in the end anyway as I had to stay on land and spend 3 hours doing some testing. I am a part of a PhD study which has been going on for over a year now and we are reaching the final, very time consuming, parts of the study. Hopefully by the end of the week everything will be done and I can get back to routine.
I also had to make the tough decision to pull out of Sail Auckland yesterday. I have been planning for months to try and go to this event but yesterday I had to face the reality that it wasn’t going to happen. Trying to afford this sport is a tough one and probably one of the biggest hindrances to participation in the sport at the elite level. Making the call did re-leave a lot of stress though and now I can move forward. I have three weeks left training here in Sydney improving my skills and getting stronger before I fly out to Europe on the 15th March. Things can only get better from here in .
