Today us Swedes celebrate “2a advent” (which basically is an excuse to eat a ton of christmas treats called “lussebullar”). After breakfast in bed and an episode of the Gilmore Girls, I started my day by heading to the gym for an hour bike intervals. I am not the biggest fan of cardio but I’ve discovered that biking makes my knee feel amazing so I’ve started to add both biking and swimming to my training routing as often as possible. Once I was done I headed home to hit the books and drink copious amounts of coffee as I just started another course in Uni. My life right now is quite different to what I thought it would be like but chilling on the couch reading books that make you look super smart when it’s snowing outside does have it’s charm. I think there is a positive angle in every situation and I’m focusing on doing the things now that I never get to do while traveling and competing. Of course I am stalking the wakeboarding world through social media and I really can’t wait to get back to that part on my life!
I was devastated to read the news about Ben Leclair’s accident and I keep sending thoughts his way and hope that he knows the whole world is rooting for him!
