Tri, Tri Again

Seeing as I can’t seem to find another triathlon that won’t mess up my run at the Chicago Marathon, I’ve found the next best thing. The DC Tri Club is putting on a training tri on Aug. 22, and I’m signed up.

It’s a 400-meter pool swim, so I’m golden, and by then I’ll have some biking back under my belt. Fingers crossed I’ll be running again by then, too. Though today I took an abs class at the gym and did some exercises that required balancing on my bad leg. Slowly but surely, slowly but surely.

I have to say though, I much prefer these blunt-force trauma injuries to my overuse injury. With this injury there has been marked, measurable, fast improvement, as opposed to before, when I just hurt all the time but couldn’t really pinpoint anything that was wrong.

Tomorrow: back to the pool for some aquajogging and laps.
