The first day was a very good day for me, as I jump better than I had most of the season. I started 13th one minute and six seconds behind the leader. I was confident that I could reach the podium that, but didn't realize how much harder it was going to be than I thought. It was not until the last lap that I caught 2nd and 3rd place. I knew that I was skiing better than them but I wasn't sure If they were saving up for a sprint or were going to break away right away. So I decided to hang on the back instead of go and push the pace. On the last little hill about .5k from the finish I was able to put in a little bit of a gap that would allow me to get second place. It was a good day but I knew I could improve on the result and try and grab the top step!
With two podiums this weekend I am extremely happy with my level of skiing at the moment. The best thing is I know it is going to get better with the more I train and have fun!
