Sports injuries…. Oh boy what a week. Apparently Ironman success doesn’t come without some battle scars already in training. It has been an eventful week on my athletic department….
First I and my bike collided so badly that I ended up to getting a giant bruise on my thigh. Then a couple of days later, thanks to doing way too many bike/run brick workouts my toe nail decided to give up and peeled off. Lastly I then got a blister on my heel. And sunburns in Alaska.
But I am still anxiously waiting for my run in the morning. With a new running team.
I’m writing this in San Francisco, hanging out here for work this week. Since I love to be a social butterfly with other athletes, I tracked down local running clubs prior my trip, and have new running buddies for every day during my stay here. Tomorrow morning meet-up is for
semi athletes, running pace 7-7:30 min/mile, or according to the leader of the club, “sometimes even less”. Hopefully I have a great running day tomorrow. Or hopefully it is a short run. Updates to follow either through my blog or maybe I make to the newspaper headlines by been the runner who passed out after two miles.
Meanwhile, I’ll leave you with a picture of my bruised thigh. I’ll save you from the grossness of my poor toe, at least for now….
