It's 9 days after my 1/2 and I can't really run more than a mile without having to walk after. Of course it's my right knee. I know this pain. If I could have rested* from training until the Friday after the 1/2, I'd probably be okay. (*yeah, I'd probably have done some easy bike training and swimming, but still it's a rest, right?)
Tonight I got the official word to stop running for the rest of the week. This will work for the tri, but now I'm worried about the 10K. What's the worst that can happen? I'll walk some of it. It's not like that hasn't happened before.
It was a standard Wednesday workout. Swim in the lake, run around it. But this time we were supposed to go 6 laps at race pace ++. It was alright. I need to figure out when my wetsuit feels right. I think I pulled it up to much this time. You already heard about the running.
I did get yanks. I got them after the mock tri, when I realized how slow I am at transition. Anything to make me faster. I do have to play with them a bit more as they weren't as tight as I'd have liked on my run today.
In other news, I got to see Star again. She brought her spawn (2 wonderful childrens) down to visit Southern Cali. Christy (also from WW) and I had dinner with everyone on Tuesday. Christy gets to see Star everyday, as Star is staying with Christy.
Tomorrow is a bike workout. Was scheduled to be a brick, so I'll just go a bit longer than the 15 miles.
