Me too! Katie comes by her computation issues honestly, at least.
So, tri class last night was good. Until I fell off my bike, at least.
We did a 8+ mile bike ride, followed by a 1 mile run. We rode out a couple miles to a less trafficky road, where we could practice passing people, and had a little competition of sorts. That went well until the last small hill, when my seat started falling down (the bolt was a tad loose). So, I get to the meeting place, stopped, unclipped, and adjusted my seat back up. I clipped one side back in to see if I had it at the right height. And promptly fell over on the clipped side.
I am definitely more embarrassed than hurt, but I landed on gravel, so have some road rash on my knee, and will have a spectacular bruise in a day or so. It was bleeding and ugly, and everyone was making a fuss (which made me even more self conscious). Other than that, it was a great class, great workout, and I loved getting out on my bike!
My plan for today was to go for a long swim. But, my knee is still oozing a bit, so, I thought I would go out for a long bike ride, instead, and swim tomorrow.
I got the compression sleeve from Nemesis yesterday! Thank you so much! I wore it all yesterday, and it seemed to make a big difference. I am going to wear it again today. I have high hopes that I'll be back in comfortable running form by next week. I'm still taking it easy this week on the running because I want to be all the way healed. I don't want this to be a nagging thing! Better a couple of weeks now. At least, that's what I keep telling myself!
