So, I have been drained lately. If you read my previous post (Bursting Sponge) you would know.
I don’t know why that is.
It could easily be the pain taking a toll of my body.
Or finals approaching.
Even a mixture of all the above.
There is one thing that has caught my attention.
I was sitting with my chiropractor yesterday, and he asked me a question.
“Why do you love figure skating?”
I thought endlessly. I couldn’t think of an answer. I just go there everyday. Do what I have to do and then go on with my day.
I have not been taking the time to appreciate my life on the ice lately.
I went from summer season, to abusive season training, to post-competition training to spring training.
I am not saying that I HATE the sport. But I am not giving my body time to heal physically and mentally.
The adrenaline from all the comps are wearing off.
The pain is also affecting me more. With everything else I am tired.
I need a good few days off from everything to reset my mind focus and my goals and to figure out where it is I want to go. I am so overwhelmed with emotions and exhaustion.
