I fell off a ladder and re-injured everything the day before the Boulder 70.3. My training and planning was for nothing in one instance. I was vacuuming a shelf and stepped backwards off a three-foot ladder landing very hard on a tile floor. My left adductor, lower back, and sports hernia all flashed back to "much pain".
Everyone is encouraging me to find a plan B and do a different race. That won't be easy. I need time to heal and that could be a few weeks. I need a wetsuit swim and those will be hard to find as the summer progresses.
I am thinking that an aggressive 2017 might be a better plan. I do need to lose some weight. More about that with next post. Right now I am going to have coffee with my coach and see what he has to say.
