Alright that sounds a little too dramatic, but I am happy to say that training has resumed. The last month I enjoyed a much needed rest both mentally and physically. Although I stayed active throughout this time there was no structure to what I was doing as the goal was simply to recover. I now feel rejuvenated and excited about next year!
There’s a lot of new and exciting opportunities in 2009. The ITU has just recently launched the World Championship series. Essentially it’s a “super” World Cup series with increased prize money and media exposure. This series will be my focus for the year. I am really looking forward to racing again but there’s a lot of work to do before then!
