Re: Alex Stevenson's Chat Thread. (!!!)
She definitely made a late withdrawal, because they had already revised the draw and schedule once last night and she was still on the revised list.
Unfortunate -- she needed to build on the halfway decent effort in Midland and she needs every single point she can manage, at this stage.
She's still in the 500s (!) and the tiny boost she got in Midland will be erased because there is only the Surprise, Arizona 25K and then virtually no American events (not even 10Ks) in March. The Bahamas event is gone and, after April, she could fall completely off the map.
Hopefully she'll make an effort to fight in Arizona, get some wins (even one win) in qualifying and really spend March going into fitness overdrive.
It just makes no sense that she did not immediately "build" on winning 3 Q matches at Midland.
If she is injured, then she has to question her ability to really function, physically, in the smallest events. If some other drama occurred, then ...
It is impossible to fathom how badly her career has played out ... Just when she needed to take the confidence of Midland and do something with it.
Hope she decides to put some extra gym time in between now and the event in Arizona.
It could and WILL help her cause. Anything, at this point.
