Balancing expertly on a pair of black ankle-strap heels, she let her signature platinum hair fly free in the breeze.

Another one of her outfits was an off-white suit with a complementary pale pink turtleneck, which she clashed fashionably against a black coat.

She revealed on her Insta Stories that the turtleneck outfit was selected for her appearance on MSNBC Thursday morning

During an appearance on Morning Joe she candidly discussed suffering from depression during her sports career.

She shared, ‘There was definitely certain times where it was worse than others. For example, during my injuries, when I missed the Sochi Olympics in 2014, that was back to back ACL reconstructions, you know, almost two years recovering from those injuries and that was a really tough time.’

Yet she ‘picked myself back up and I think my love for skiing is really what drove me through those times, and also my support system of my family and friends, my physical therapist. So I’m in a great place now but, you know, definitely had some difficulties over the course of my career.’

After winning four World Cup overall championships, she announced her retirement from skiing in 2019 following multiple knee injuries. 

Lindsey added that ‘it was really challenging, actually, much harder than I thought’ to cope with life after skiing.

'I'm not a morning person': Early in the morning, she posted a selfie with her makeup done to her main Instagram page and joked: 'Woke up like this¿. Wait¿ no¿ no I did not'

The sport had ‘been so much of my life and then, you know, I woke up one day and it was no longer there,’ she confessed.

‘So it was tough but I think it was really important for me as a human being to go through that transition and figure out who I am without ski racing.’ 

Lindsey was in a more cheerful aspect when she took the show to Insta Stories just after taping her morning chat-show appearance.

She playfully hid a copy of her memoir in an outdoor planter on the sidewalk and challenged her fans to try and find it.

The accomplished sportswoman had previously posted a picture of herself ‘Delirious’ and ‘Not. Awake,’ as she got her hair done for Morning Joe. 

Early in the morning, she posted a selfie with her makeup done to her main Instagram page and joked: ‘Woke up like this…. Wait… no… no I did not.’

Lindsey quipped that she was ‘psyched you can’t see the circles under my eyes from the 5am wake-up calls (I’m not a morning person!) still, I’m loving the challenge of this book tour but wish I could see everyone in person.’ 

In a new excerpt from her memoir obtained by NBC Sports she reflected on how she adjusted to life after she retired.

‘Over that first year in retirement, I traveled through all the stages of grief – denial, pain, anger, bargaining, depression, reconstruction, acceptance,’ she wrote.

‘In a way, though, it only seemed fitting, because it was like part of me had died. I needed to fully mourn the chapter that was closing before I could embrace whatever came next,’ added the Minnesota-born sportswoman.

She explained: ‘I desperately missed the mental cycle that athletes exist inside— preparation, hard work, feedback, performance. You win or lose, then you get back up and do it again. Without that singular focus, I felt aimless.’

Eventually she met a psychologist called Dr. Armando Gonzalez who introduced her to a technique called ‘brainspotting’ that she felt worked for her.

‘Practically, it means you sit and actively focus on your stored traumas, sometimes for hours at a time. It can be very, very hard, and emotionally intense,’ she shared 

‘Some days, I would feel so mentally drained, I would need to immediately sleep it off, but it really does work. On the other side, I’ve found it did allow me to fully process and move past some of those stored narratives.’
