Reading your post brought back so many memories for me. You might not remember me but I’m from Winona, MN and skied at NMU during the late 1980’s. I had exactly the same experience you are having now during my final years at NMU. Only advice I can provide is do exactly what you are doing. Step back the pressure, stay positive and probably most important – find yourself beyond skiing. You seem to have a really well rounded life. Shift focus to the other areas while your body recovers to bring back those PR’s. You’ll find you become an even better racer knowing you have those other areas when it comes back. IT WILL COME BACK. Cheers and enjoy the ride. Go Wildcats!!
