Jenny Larsson Is Back On Rollerskis After A Missed Season And Surgery

Jenny Larsson missed Ski Classics Season XII and in April had surgery on her injured ligament’s wrist. Yesterday, Larsson did her first rollerski session with two poles.

On Wednesday, Jenny Larsson was back on rollerskis (photo was taken on an earlier occasion).

Larsson had her big breakthrough as a long-distance skier in Season XI, winning the 65-kilometer-long La Diagonela in Switzerland by a superior margin. But with a fall later that season, she injured her wrist. And that injury kept her away from the competition tracks throughout the last Ski Classics season.

After a long series of examinations and investigations, it was clear that a tenacious injury to her ligament’s wrist caused her to lose the entire 2021/2022 season (read more here).

The injury was operated on in April, and the rehabilitation has since taken place step by step. Last week she was on a return visit to the hand surgeon in Gothenburg and received positive news:

“Everything looks very good. Then I am not back where I was in terms of strength and mobility, but I am well on my way. And the most important thing of all is that the operated ligament works as it should,” says Jenny Larsson, who has been at the same level as in previous summers and has been able to train on the stationary bike and skierg.

But during the last week, Larsson has been able to improve the training:

“I have been able to cycle outdoors, previously shocks were felt in the hand, but now the pain was gone, much more fun to cycle outside than inside,” says Larsson, who could also add something she had been waiting for even longer; to ski again with two poles:

“I was nervous already the day before the session and chose to rollerski skate, and it was “only” 40 minutes. But it was absolutely wonderful, and I felt no pain at all.”

What does the progression look like?

“I will rollerski skate every other day for the next few weeks and combine with my physio. Then I will, as time goes on, sneak in diagonal skiing, kick double pole, and finally double poling. According to the forecast, I will be in full training on rollerskis with long sessions and intervals at the end of August. It is important not to push too hard and risk overload damage, but at the same time, I must not be comfortable. As an elite athlete, you do not have all the time in the world,” says Jenny Larsson, who has chosen to take the step to Ragde Charge for the coming season.

Barely five months remain until the Ski Classics Season XIV premiere:

“I am humbled that I am a bit left to pick up from where I was before the injury. But at the same time, I have done a good job, and I still have plenty of time for the start of the season. Then we will see if this pays off already in the first competitions. It’s hard to say, regardless of whether you had the worries I had or not, but that uncertainty is always there before a new season,” concludes Jenny Larsson.
