-“Condition gounded, but determined to try” -Pink Floyd…. Learning To Fly
No real surprise, but I’m still a bit disappointed. I raced the Santa Rosa Tri last year so I really wanted to use it, this year, to measure year over year progress.
Seeing how I have yet to log any considerable pain-free mile since March, I decided a few weeks ago that participating was really pointless.
And I was REALLY, REALLY tired of racing injured and hurting, only to be frustrated with the end result.
So now a new experience….
My 1st DNS!!!!
And hopefully my last! 😉
My hip and glute are feeling closer to normal with each day. I’ve been able to return to running and cycling. While I finally don’t hurt DURING activity, I do tighten up quite a bit after all is said and done. A lot of tissue work is still being performed to keep things loose and mobile.
Sometimes I’m successful….other times not so much.
As does the healing process go…
So racing, right now, is out of the question.
And there are bigger goals on the horizon for 2013.
Slowly, but surely!
Run Happy, My Friends!
