After yesterday’s little setback, I jumped on bike for a couple of hours to give the legs a really good work out. Thankfully, there were no issues with the calf. And that’s a wrap on a pretty good week of training. 🏊🏼🚴🏽🏃🏽
No matter how hard we try, how perfect we execute every workout, follow the ideal training plan... Injuries can still happen! The worse part isn't the actual physical injury but rather the war that is currently waging in my own head.
I am coming off 3 solid weeks of training. My running was really starting to feel great again. And then I banged my knee really hard within an hour of finishing my long run. Immediately I was experiencing intense pain!
Hard to see in the picture but it is still swollen and some slight bruising is visible, but today makes it two days where I have been unable to get the work in. With my last 70.3 of the season only a few weeks away, I am getting anxious. I want to keep building to end the season with a bang but at the same time, I know it is smarter to let the knee heel and work from there!
Let's hope it is only a bruise and nothing more serious. Time to finish the season strong and come back next season stronger!

Injury update - I still have a broken elbow and torn ligaments but have found a way to train without too much pain/aggravation #gohardorgohome #teamdavid #huub #huubdesign
After a great day with family and @mrs.jacquelinebrown
I hit the road for my long run. Unfortunately it only lasted for 37mins before my calf decided to flare up again 😡 (photo was taken about 30mins in)
I put the cue in the rack and hit the bath and the roller. It’s frustrating, but I’m not going to do anything silly this close to my goal. 🏊🏼🚴🏽🏃🏽
sera prochainement sur l'@ironman
70.3 Cascais au Portugal. All the best 😉
