Received an email confirmation yesterday that my hotel request has been accepted. Due to the volume of requests, it took the Lahti Travel agency a few weeks to sort it all out, on a first-come, first served basis.
The dream is alive. It almost doesn’t feel real. This is ten years in the making. You might even say it’s been 50 years in the making.
The thing that brings me back to reality is the other update.
In a few minutes, I’ll be heading to the hospital, to the physical therapy/rehab center, getting a strength test to see how well balanced my body is.
Are the quads and hamstrings proportional? Lower legs and upper legs proportional? Is my core strong enough?
All this to determine the chance of injury.
As a Master athlete, competing on a National and World level, a 50-year old man can very easily be tempted to exercise like they are still 18. Let me tell you first hand, it doesn’t work that way.
Whatever you’ve been working on, whether it’s been 50 years or ten, make it a great day, and find all the reasons you need, to not give up. Carpe diem, jeff noel 🙂
