My first big goal on this journey is actually a reconnaissance mission to the Oceania Continental Championships. It will be one of the qualifying competitions for Olympic selection in 2019 and as it’s only held once every two years, this will be my only chance to check it out before the main event. It’s in seven weeks.
Having only just started getting back into training again, any time off feels like a set back. And being off because of a pesky head cold just feels unfair.
I’m trying to take it all in stride, tell myself “better now than in a month”, take it as a sign that I need to slow down, ease up, and take better care of myself. It’s really difficult for me – I am so driven by so many things. Think I’ll start by taking a nap. 🙂
