Really where this puts me is with no excuses not to be in the pool and on my bike every day. In the long run it could be a good thing. Right now I hate not running and not being able to race. But with running being my stronger discipline of the 3 sports, I am confident that I can pick up my run fitness very quickly. So this time period will give me a chance to hopefully get much stronger in my cycling and swimming.

Most people have already heard this, but for those who were wondering why I did not run Bloomsday (yes it was awhile ago) there is a reason why. The day after the spokane river run I took a spill on mybike. Yes I was riding slow, yes I was pretty much on flat ground with nothing around, and yes I quickly got up and looked around to make sure no one saw my stupid crash. Long story short, after going to the doctor I found out that I bruised my femur bone. It has been 3 and a half weeks since the crash and i still can't run a mile without pain setting in. I am going back to the doctor today to check and make sure that nothing else is going on besides the bruised bone.
