We are making progress2016-02-03
The injuries are fortunately healing very well and as expected. The cut on my thigh is already mostly closed. And yesterday I sat for the first time on the roller, in order to bring my circulation back into shape.
The finger is the worst injury, which will take many weeks to heal. But the treatment here in Hamburg is on a very high level. And as far as rehabilitation and physiotherapeutical treatment, they have everything. I am really very satisfied with the care I am receiving.
But the result of all of this is that I most probably will not be at the start of the Classics. The injuries themselves,as they are now, would not necessarily prevent me from starting. But because of the loss of training, I would not be at the competitive level I would ordinarily have. And if you know how ambitious I am, then you know that I only want to take part if if I can again bring in a top result. So I would rather use the time to let all my injuries heal completely. Yours, Dege.
