I had a tough starting position yesterday! 54 seconds behind the leader. I was pushing a lot in the uphills and my body felt OK.
The last lap brought us closer to the leaders but it was not enough to make it all the way up. However, I am very happy with the race. I Finished 4th and it was probably the best I could make from the starting position. I am very happy for Daniel who was 3rd. He had a great weekend.
It was good to have this weekend. Even though it was really cold, but so is our sport sometimes and you just have to bite the bullet and run as long as you can. I fortunately do not have so sensitive airways as many other athletes, but anyway it is a bit sensitive there so you should better be safe than sorry.
Now I'm heading home to Gällivare to get some training workouts before I return to Davos. I will sit out the weekend's races in Düsseldorf and train instead. It would obviously be fun to race there, but there are important races in the future that require a lot of training.
