first_img0Shares0000Sanchez has managed just one goal in his first 10 appearances since arriving at Old Trafford and revealed he expected better of himself after his January move.LONDON, United Kingdom, Mar 23 – Alexis Sanchez has admitted to struggling with mental exhaustion after a disappointing start to life at Manchester United.Sanchez has managed just one goal in his first 10 appearances since arriving at Old Trafford and revealed he expected better of himself after his January move. After four years at Arsenal, Sanchez has found it hard to adapt to his new club and was dropped to the bench for last weekend’s FA Cup quarter-final victory over Brighton.He is currently on international duty with Chile, despite initially asking to miss Saturday’s friendly against Sweden, and the 29-year-old appears to be in need of rest.Sanchez posted a message on Instagram which read: “I know you are tired. I know you are psychologically and emotionally exhausted. But you have to smile and continue.”The United forward told the Chilean media on Thursday: “The change of club was something that was very abrupt – it was the first time I’ve changed clubs in January – but many things have happened in my life that are difficult.”He added: “As I am self-demanding, I expected something better. After my arrival at United, it was hard to change everything very quickly. I even hesitated to come here [to Sweden].”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Image by deicmanis. If you complete this Wherigo in the heat of the summer, you can cool off by swimming between the islands. Swimming is an essential component of this Wherigo, as some of the Wherigo zones are located entirely in water. In the winter it’s an entirely different experience; swimsuits will have to be traded for warm coats and boots in order to hike across frozen water. Wherigo GC3N9Q6 by Gatisk Madara_Apsalone. Cache owner Gatisk was inspired to create this Wherigo after taking part in a rogaining competition in the area. Rogaining is a team orienteering sport based around cross-country navigation. The route of the Wherigo was created to mirror the winning route of the 2011 competition. Geocachers should expect to spend most of the day completing this long Wherigo, but if you’re feeling up for an extra challenge you can try and complete it in under four hours, the winning time from the 2011 competition. Located a short distance from Latvia’s capital, Riga, this Wherigo® Cache leads cachers on a journey through one of the largest bogs in Latvia. The name of the cache, Wet Cat, refers to the appearance of the green moss found around the nature reserve where the cache was placed. However, it could also refer to the appearance of a geocacher who has arrived at this cache’s final coordinates. Location: Latvia N 56° 51.761′ E 023° 47.279′ Cachers who take on this D5/T5 challenge leave not just with another find, but also with an appreciation of the natural beauty of the Baltic region, and an adventurous story to tell. Everyone loves a geocache that can be found without too much hassle, but sometimes a geocacher craves something more. Sometimes a geocacher wants to spend all day on an adventure. Sometimes a geocacher wants to swim across lakes, jump between islands, and hike across bogs to make it to the logbook. For anyone looking for a cache that fulfills these requirements, look no further than Slapjais Kakis/Wet Cat, our Geocache of the Week.last_img read more
