Take the hits in stride
I have been doing this sport long enough now to know that things don’t always go your way. I was expecting better results over the last month but I had not real goals but to get stronger throughout period one. My racing sensations have improved. I am not skiing at the level that I know I need to in order reach my goals at the Olympics but I still have 50 or so days to come to peak form. For a decade and a half I have been striding and striving year round to perform at my best in Sochi. I am glad that I have not come into the season too hot but now it is time for the nerves to come in and kick me into gear.
