It's here already.. Oceanside 70.3!
Last year, this was my favorite race. I hope it's equally as exciting for me this coming time! I am not sure how it's going to go with my back not having healed yet but I'll do my best.. give it go and see what comes of it! My top wish for Oceanside... please let the water be warm! And by warm, I am thinking 58F or above! Beyond that, I hope for sunshine and little wind.. don't we all?!
So more details about my injured back. Weak back muscles + stronger shoulder muscles as I started to pick it up in swimming + poor posture at work from sitting in front of a computer all day long = displaced rib. Displaced rib = inflamed T7 vertebrae. I can still swim, bike and run but swimming causes slight pain... post swimming causes an increased feeling in the pain... biking is fine unless if I have to take deep breathes.. usually happens when coach puts the hammer down in the pain cave and painless during the run except post run.. I usually REALLY feel it especially if run includes intervals.. needless to say.. I've been keeping my run workouts mostly steady these days.
Anyway, best of luck to those of you heading down there! See ya out on the course!!
