What if I never get back to where I was?
And it is this fear that has me in a funk. I’m crabby and annoyed.
At Vineman my right calf started hurting about half way through the bike portion. In the final miles of the bike I talked myself off the if-my-calf-hurts-on-the-bike-it’s-going-to-hurt-so-much-more-on-the-run-what-will-I-do???? ledge. Luckily it bothered me very little on the run and wasn’t a factor (at all) in my performance. I counted my blessings in so many ways that day.

My brain is ready to get back to training, especially to tackle marathon training, but my body still needs recovery. I “want” to ignore the complaints from my leg and push ahead, but I have big plans that could get seriously side-lined if I wind-up truly injured.
|What a wonderful tool and it hurts so good.|

The goal is to get back to 100% and avoid any additional/serious injury. I’m doing my best to give my body the time it needs for just that.
Smile. Sweat. Enjoy.
