I finally got lucky with an injury. I was bound to have an easy injury eventually. I may be able to do the triathlon Sunday. It will be slow and painful but I will be able to compete. I am looking forward to see how much pain I can endure for an hour. The swim and bike should be fine. It is that 10K run at the end that will hurt.
I don’t like to say this but I know it is true, get your injuries checked by a medical professional. I don’t think a doctor could have done much for my injury but he could have done a lot for my peace of mind. I went from what I thought was a pulled groin to thinking it was a fracture to proving it was a hip flexor injury. Actually it is a specific muscle in the hip flexor group but I don’t remember which one. Had I gotten it checked early, I could have done a lot of exercises and I did not need to mope about because of an injury.
Cross training is good. Do not let injuries get you down. Get it checked out and find a new way to keep moving. By all means, keep moving!
