I'm Back! (Orienteering Headcam)
Det var ett väldigt bra lopp! Jag är tyvärr inte i bra form just nu eftersom jag är precis tillbaka från min andra långvariga skada på ett år. Jag hade problem i mina fötter men sedan fick jag kortison sprutor som fixade irritationen och jag kan springa igen! Just nu har jag orienteringen under kontroll men jag måste träna upp min kondition och mestadels mina ben.Jag kommer att ladda upp mycket mer nu framöver! Gilla och Prenumerera!
It was a very good race! I'm unfortunately not in a good shape currently because of being back from my second prolonged injury in one year. I've had problems in my feet but then I received cortisone injections which fixed the irritations and I can now run again! Currently I have the orienteering basis under control but I have to train my fitness and mostly my legs! I will be posting a lot more from now on! Like and subscribe!
