Back to Europe we go. I ALREADY MISS HOME SO MUCH! I am going to need to find ways to make the time pass or at least enjoy the time that passes after getting a small taste of home.
I know it's surprising and somewhat pathetic, but I haven't even been skiing yet since we have been on the road! We have been traveling around the world to some of the most sought after ski destinations and I refused to put on skis. I'm a little disappointed in myself. So I guess that is the first thing I need to start doing….skiing.
Maybe Bode will race again next year so I can make up the runs I've lost.
So besides skiing, my preseason training is about to ramp up. I made the mistake of playing tennis when we were back in the US after doing nothing for two months and threw my back out. Talk about feeling old!
And every athlete knows that recovery from training and skiing is probably the most important and time consuming activity. Thus, I am promising myself that I will take advantage of every spa and maintain my massage regimen so I don't throw my back out again. I am really going to have to twist my own arm to keep this promise. And if we don't have access to one of the many local saunas and spas, then I am promising myself that Bode will provide me with my massage. Now for these, I am really going to have to twist Bode's arm (not kidding). Maybe even threaten death….or really intense indian burns.
And if for some reason I absolutely fail at skiing, training and massages, I'm just going to revel in the fact that the Olympics are less than a month away and enjoy the rest of the ride.
