New Year, new priorities   Leave a comment

I haven’t blogged for a while, but I’m still here. We’ve started the (Jewish) new year, and today was the Day of Atonement, when we fast and atone for all our sins. Now we can get going again.

After my trip to the Lakes I rested, and my ankle problem went away. Then I started running and it came back. I think I have an inflammation in a tendon, and the doctor agrees, so with the assistance of a few pills it should go away for good very shortly, but I’m not training properly yet. The orienteering season here has started, slowly (it’s still hot on most days), and the first national event is a couple of weeks away, so I won’t be fully fit yet.

My priorities are changing as well. Now I have to devote more time to the children (did you know that 3 > 2 ?), Roni’s maternity leave is over and she’s back at work, and we have various family issues taking up more of our time, so there is less spare time for orienteering. But orienteering is my life and I’m not going anywhere, just cutting back on non-essential activities. I’ll probably do much less mapping now, and go to less local events, and I will definitely train less – unlike last year, Roni can run as well and usually we can’t go out together! It’s going to be like this for a few years – until Alon (hopefully) is big enough to start orienteering for himself, not just running around in the woods for fun.
