YAY I just got some awesome news.
I got confirmation from the doctors that I am allowed to compete this year!
"My heart is recovering and I just have to pay extra attention to how my body is feeling.
I have to remember that it was a huge trauma for my heart in October and that recovery takes time.
Why my heart rate has been so low again is most likely a response to the trauma/shock my body is still in. "
The body is an amazing machine and I am forever thankful for everything my body is doing for me.
Still going strong (at least trying!).
I am nowhere close to the shape I was in before the World Championships in October… and it’s tough mentally.
I’m slowly getting back to shape, but it has been a challenge for me to keep the motivation up since the accident.
I guess it’s because I had been fighting so hard for 4 years and was in my best shape ever….. and then back to 0, just like that.
One part of me is just super happy I can train something, while one part of me is feeling ”this sucks!” .
To feel weak, heavy and out of shape is one of the worst feelings.
But I try to see it as another great experience.
And NOW when I got the green light from the doctors I can aim for the competitions this year.
I really want to.
BUT the question is if I would be ok with not being in my best shape at competition, if my body isn’t responding the way I want…?
I should just do it for fun, but would it be fun to not be at my best?
