Wake up. Just like yesterday. Just like tomorrow. The soreness flares up, trying to lure you back under the covers. But you get up anyway. Every sunrise this dance repeats itself. Day after day. Year after year. Why do I have to train? Why put myself through the pain? But your body wakes up and acclimates. You remember all that brought you to this point. Motivation kicks back in. the tiredness fades.
As you get dressed, you visualize your goal. The one. The same one. Ever since the first race. To reach it you’ll do whatever it takes: boxing slalom poles, putting in the work, giving all you’ve got. Today will bring you one step closer. Today, you’ll push harder than the last.
2 pm - Precision
Put on your ski kit. Fasten your buckles. Adjust your mask. Every effort takes your mind off the cold. Every detail counts when measured by tenths of a second. You can’t leave anything to chance. Be precise in every aspect. Be 100% focused. Memorizing the slope,visualizing your line. Identifying the key areas to accelerate, decelerate, finding the ideal trajectory to propel you faster down the fall line. Then comes the reward, the rest your body deserves. The rest you will need to win.

7 pm - Talent
It’s race day. The timing is perfect. The pinnacle of form and the peak of precision. All of the work you’ve put in has built to this moment. The commitment and repetition allows your talent to shine. Looking up to the leader board to see the number next to your name. This fleeting moment erases the long hours of work.
