First RACE since European Championships today and I am so happy and thankful that I was able to complete it.
To be honest, I wasn't sure if I would participate... my body hasn't recovered well since The Netherlands.
Lack of sleep and increased painlevel has it's impact.
BUT I am trying to stay positive, like always.
I'm thankful and happy that my body is letting me train at all. And that I am the European Champion is almost too good to be true🙏
But yes I am struggeling with the acceptans that my body is not coping well with as much training and physical activity as it used to.
I don't want to be limited, because in my world there are NO limits....but when my body is saying NO I somewhere feel that I have to listen and work with acceptance.
but it is tough.
Therefor I wasn't sure if I would participate today at Fjällfysiken Obstacle Race.
I really wanted to, but .....
I have been resting more than normal during my days here so in the end I decided to give it a go, just for fun.
See it as a challenge, a challenge to not be disapointed if my body would say no during the race.
A challenge to let myself take it easy and just do it for FUN.
I managed!!! I did it! And I completed the race.
Best of all I enjoyed it and was able to take it easy!
I didn't push my body to it's max and was really enjoying to be running again🙏
To get the chance to compete against one of the BEST runners was an honor!
Thanks Yoie (RastaRunner!!) 💪🙌💕
