Liquid Glucosamine for Athletes Update: World Championships
Update from Tim Burke
October 17, 2013
The past few weeks of racing were pretty tough for me. I got sick almost immediately after traveling back to Europe after Christmas and I struggled over the next few weeks to get back to 100%. Some races I would feel normal and I would think that I was finally healthy but these days were almost always followed by a race where I felt completely empty. Considering this roller coaster ride, I was pretty happy with some of my results but it definitely left me a little frustrated.
Lucky for me, we now have a few week break before the start of World Championships. I am finally getting the chance to recover back to 100% and most importantly I have been able to start picking up the training hours, which is something that I have been able to do for a long time. I am staying in Antholz, Italy for the entire pre World Champs camp. This is definitely one of my favorite places to stay during the winter. Antholz has a great combination of delicious Italian food, prefect ski tracks right out the front door and lots of sun. After a few weeks here, I am confident that I will be very well prepared for World Championships.
While it has been frustrating to not be at my best over the past few weeks, I am happy that I was still able to be competitive. I am really curious what I can do when I am at my best!
