Concerns

For whatever reason, my mind is full of concerns this week. I'm thinking maybe if I write them down, they'll go away:

I'm really tired after the race, should I stay the course and follow the plan until my rest for Wildflower or take some rest days.

If I stick to my 8 days on, two days recovery schedule, I'll have recovery on Saturday, which is one of the sole two days that I can actually ride outdoors.

My left knee has been bothering me since the race on Sunday.

My right heel is still bothering me.

My right glute and hammie is progressively getting tighter again.

If I wasn't a triathlete, would my only concern be what am I going to eat for dinner?

Sounds like a little downtime may he

Listen to your body. REST.

Go into Wildflower fresh, give the body the rest it wants! :)

And I think being a triathlete makes me worry even MORE about what's for dinner. The hunger pangs of Ironman training *still* haunt me!

Matt and Charisa beat me to the punch - sounds like you need REST! (and then you'll have time to worry about what's for dinner :)

take some time - REST! You will end up in a better place mentally and physically if you do - do WHAT you would tell someone else to do! Think of your little swimmers…….REST!

mmmm... dinner.

agreed with the above. find 100% again before you push!

If you weren't a triathlete, dinner probably wouldn't be nearly as big of a concern.

Then again, you probably wouldn't consider half a jar of peanut butter an appatizer either.

Did you follow the advice? Did it work? Hope you're feeling better!
