After Five Weeks, the Open Has Come to a Close…

I finished 18.5 last night and felt horrible.

I had to sit down for 15 minutes and then eat something.Open 18.5

Still, I felt bad.  I usually never feel bad after a workout.

I think it was a combination of things:  stress, anxiety, pressure, my wrist sprain, odd workout times for me, pushing hard on 18.5, etc that my body protested.

I came home and took a bath.  Laid down.  Felt a bit better…

The Open this year was tough.  Very tough.  Demoralizing in a way I haven’t been in a long time.

Training begins now for next year.

I’m unsure yet how much of a break I’ll take first.

Right now, I’m just enjoying it being over.  I’m awaiting Wednesday when I find out my final place in the region.  I know it’s better than last year and that’s all I could have hoped for…

  1. You look GREAT… listen to your body though and take a little break. It’s amazing how much work goes in to preparing for a competition and then the competition goes by so quickly. You are inspiring me. I want to train for “something,” but not sure what yet.
