If you keep up with this blog you might be aware that I had the flu a few weeks ago and I missed over a week of training and a weekend of racing. I'm back training full time now but I feel like I'm still recovering and I feel tired most of the time and slow. Even as I write this I haven't done anything all day (it's our day off) and I still feel like I'm only half awake. I worry that I might be getting sick again and I'm struggling with doing both school and skating this year so I worry about my marks. For me at this moment skating takes precedent; I don't want to go into National Team Trials feeling underprepared or feeling like I didn't do everything possible to succeed but I think I would feel a lot better if one thing was going well instead of struggling with both.
I know deep down that this one competition isn't the most important thing in the world and that once skating ends this month I'll probably have time to turn my school marks around but it doesn't mean I don't worry.
I need a job so I can afford a vacation.
