Recovery Week

Here are some pictures from my recovery week in Ruhpolding.


Enjoying a picnic in the mountains


On Tuesday I did a short hike in the mountains right outside of Ruhpolding.


I spent one afternoon relaxing at a mountain lake outside of Ruhpolding.

I also spent some time working on my cooking skills.

I also spent some time working on my cooking skills.

Of course my recovery week had some training sessions as well, although I trained less then half of what I train in a normal week.  Yesterday we also participated in a relay race at German Championships.  This was hands down the worst relay that I have ever been a part of.  It seems that all three of us were still sleeping from the recovery week… Not much I can do about yesterday’s race other than laugh and move on.  This year I really want to work on my ability to “let go” of poor performances and now I am getting some good practice before the season even starts!

Tomorrow we will have the full team back together for three more weeks of training.
