    I don't know, but all these delays can't help but give badly needed time for that shin bruise to heal.

    Wednesday! This is from Lindsey's latest post on Facebook from Saturday:
    Just sitting in my condo up here in Whistler baking some banana bread and watching the rain continue to come down. I had a full day off from skiing today did alot of therapy and worked out. A DH training run has been rescheduled for tomorrow @ 11am. My shin is feeling better and better each day I am excited to get a chance to test it out tomorrow. LV
    She also had the fastest time on the training run today so it looks good!

    Another Lindsey update from her FB from an hour ago.....

    So we finally got a DH training run in today which is good news. We had to get at least one training run in before Wed or a race was going to be canceled. I was definitely anxious to get up to full speed today and test out my shin. During inspection I could see the course was going to be pretty bumpy, but I don't think I was entirely prepared for just how bumpy it was. It was by far the bumpiest course I have ever skied. The good news is although it was really painful my leg held up ok and I won the training run. The bad news is my shin is really sore again. Hopefully after alot of therapy tonight it will feel better in the morning. I already iced once and right now I have the cheese wrap on . Hopefully with a little help from mother nature the course crews will be able to mellow out some of the roughness it was definitely extreme today. Also just want to say congratulations to the new Olympic DH champion Didier Defago, silver medalist Axel Lund Svindal, and bronze medalist Bode Miller it was impressive to watch good job!
