Nowadays I read more and more from social media how people are upset and losing motivation to train because they can't train how they want or are used to, or their competitions have been cancelled. Only thing I want to ask is: what the heck? Why…? What's wrong with you? You are an amazing and strong athlete, one or two postponed/cancelled competitions doesn't define you in any way.
Before leaving the island I trained some, not as aggressively as I should have and I regret it now.
These past few years I have dealt with several injuries that have kept me from doing what I love, at a level far below my expectations. Swimming, biking, running, at any distance, is a struggle and a feat.
Looking back, I see that my greatest blessings came from taking risks.
After a broken knee cap, running became more difficult. I decided to take a year off from running and opted to do Aquabike.
