A longer road
Wednesday, January 18, 2006

Hello all,

So this is where we stand... the bone bruise proves to be more of a nuisance than expected. I spend the last week stashed away in Anif, a small town just outside of Salzburg, Austria, nestled in between 100 acres of farmland and the autobahn while the rest of my team raced in southern Austria (a few hours away). Without wheels I caught a ride to Rif, our dryland training center, every morning with a handicapped local hero Thomas Geisisberg who won gold in the Athens Olympics.

After a week of double sessions, it was time to see where we stood. Yesterday, I gave my knee an on-snow test just to realize the road to recovery is longer than I hoped. On flat to moderate terrain my knee felt absolutely perfect, but with steeper terrain and icy conditions the deep knee pain was back. Although it’s definitely better than before, it’s still not race ready.

This week I’ll be training at Rif and I will be on-snow doing drills on the flats.

Sadly it'll probably be another two weeks before we're back.

Hope all is well, w
