Hi there. It was cold today, extremely cold! I barely could keep up with keeping myself warm while skiing and therefore my breaks in between were really short. The wind was blowing right in my face and I had my ski mask on the whole day. Today was extremely challenging and I had to fight hard with my self.. I was mentally not 100% here and was not feeling so good. I just wanted to set up my camp and get away from the cold.. the traveling conditions were very hard and therefore difficult to ski. I had long conversation with myself and to Polianna.. I wanted to get over this and go back to my regular best. I experienced home sickness for the first time today. But as the day went along, I became more determinant and manage to ski 20 km. I was therefore extremely happy and proud to have crossed this wall and finished the day. Thank you for all your support!
