Behind the scenes?!


Oh this time’s passing so quickly! Sorry!=)

So how is it going over here? There’s been a lot of things happening behind the scenes. I just wanted to show how it happens… the results are not always ”just” what they show. How people usually do? -check out the results from the races and blame the losers and cheer for the winners. easy eh? Most of the time there are many unknown facts that should be considered before you cheer or blame..^^’ I’m not talking just about me, but also about all the athletes!

Well, there really have been going on something. And in this case there are things like moving, packing, cleaning, racing, training, school, boyfriend, decorating, playing, worrying… eh demanding me just to take a nap! -But I don’t have even time fot that!

After my big brother’s wedding, it’s been all but easy! I have to mention that my first (hopefully not the last) weddingday was memorable and lovely, but also causing very aching feet and also I got a flue! Next weekend after that we had finnish cross-biathlon champs, and it didn’t really help my feeling in my body when I HAD to start in the races. Well, luckily I wasn’t that bad and we took even the relay gold for Kontiolahti!
So let’s count, one week sick and the next week I was kind of resting in Helsinki and then heading to Lahti where I was training with my personal coach! At this part I felt okey, but once again there were IBU-cup roller races coming…
So I think I was kind of healthy one week and of course you’re supposed to do a lot of trainings, well due to that and all the other stressy things (like packing, cleaning up for the new address!!!) I started in rollerraces…

Everyone can check out the results, and think oh she’s not doig very well… In the big new steap uphill I was nearly dead, and in addition to bad skiing I even shot 2 misses from standing. Somewhere between Otepää trainingraces and that day (5weeks) I had lost over 100seconds compared to my fellow Sarianna. 10seconds behind in Otepää and now we could be nearly counting hours^^D

My nervsystem was tired, so did my muscles, in that case you have no choice to take in some oxygen..^D Well, I skipped the pursuit day and continued my non-athletic lifestyle with packing and stressing. so on… And that means one week total stress with big packs and new address stuff. Luckily we got it finished before the Finnish roller-biathlon champs just during the next weekend! But there were no better way. One day during the previous week I realized I had to calm down and stop worrying about every single thing when I was crying all day along, even in the training…^^/

My new home is now here in the centrum of Joensuu, just a few steps away from university.. I’m living now in a huge 106m2 flat with my little brother and boyfriend. It’s only ridiculous that both of them took this moving very calmly, and only I was affected so heavily.
But dont’ worry now I’m doing a little bit better! Unfortunately I wasn’t allowed to follow the A-team to Obertilliach trainingcamp, nor I have money for Ramsau sportcamp! This year our lovely association put so heavy costs for the camp that none of b-team can’t afford it!

That means training days at home… that’s a bit heavy for my bright head which loves Austria and the landscapes of Ramsau!

However, There were certainly some things going on here, and that’s (hopefully) the reason for the poor races at this point of the season. Luckily I’ve still three months to go before the season starts…. in SWEDEN!!! o vad jag saknar ditåt!:)

I’ll update later, now I head to dancelessons and wait for the coming sportcamp in Vuokatti!
