Today felt good. Really good. I’m slowly turning into a real speed skater. Cadences felt great, my speed in the corners is getting better and I can pull my whole team finally on at least 3 laps no problem. However, my upper body still needs some work, turning old habits around – just gotta get down more. But overall, today felt accomplished.
Skating is therapeutic to me. All else in the world can be chaos, but when I lace up – lights out. I hope you all find that in something. And I hope you chase it as hard as I do. Believe me, after days like today and arguably years like mine in 2014-15, you figure out quickly why you chase it. Sure, you run the risk of losing some people along the way, but don’t you think it’d be worse to lose yourself?
