So not much to report but I wanted to let everyone in on what has been going on.
I completed my level two tri coaching in Vancouver last weekend, overall it was a pretty good experience with a lot of opportunity for practical work with some athletes who were kind enough to come out. I was especially happy to be able to coach some swimming, as that is my weakest area, and I don't get very much opportunity to work with athletes in the pool.
In other news, I had a bit of a set back with my stress fracture. I got two runs in before I started to have soreness in my shin again. I am trying to be smart about this (rather than just push through as I usually do), so I have backed off again, back in the pool for water running!
I was pretty depressed about this set back for a couple of days, but I have calmed down and focused back on training. I need to keep my focus on this being a development season. I have a lot of years ahead of me in this sport, and healing properly for a career is more important than one race.
So the summary is, Swim good, Bike GOOD, run In progress...
good wishes for all!
