Jumping Farther, Skiing Faster
The week in steamboat started off great. I had some solid jump sessions and a good run with some of my teammates. However the bliss didn't last long. Just before our afternoon plyo session our team was playing soccer and I was unlucky enough to sprain my ankle pretty bad for the second time this year. So I will not be able to ski this weekend in the 4th of july comps. Right now my main focus is Nationals at the end of july. So all my efforts before then will be focused on rehabbing the ankle to get it back to 100% before then. However this is a great opportunity to take advantage of my down time to become more flexible.
On a lighter note the Tour De France starts tomorrow. The TDF is my favorite sporting event to watch. I have my Fantasy team in for the tour. Our team has a fantasy league which should make life even more interesting. So while everyone else is out on the grind... I will be sitting in my living room stretching, rehabbing, and watching the TDF while managing my fantasy team. Sounds pretty good to me!
