All things progressing well, but something not quite right.
Back in November when I came down with the flu it certainly put a hamper on my training but symptoms still seem to linger. The strength training and easy distance work seems unaffected but intervals and racing I seem to be experiencing chest congestion and breathing issues and reduced gears.
Hopefully with some adjustments things will come around.
Some big events on the horizon with the two western NorAm events taking place this weekend in Vernon and next weekend in Canmore due to the lack of snow in Whistler.
I'll head out to Vernon this weekend and take part in the sprint and mid distance event and then next weekend I'll drive down to Canmore for the sprint event on Thursday and then do the distance event on Sunday, most likely skipping the Saturday event so I can be here at the shop.
With the good snow here in Edmonton the training has been progressing quite well providing some well needed ski specific training. That combined with twice daily strength sessions I feel well prepared, well, as well prepared as a 51 year old can feel going into a NorAm event:-)
