Well I guess after the adrenaline wore off I started to feel the effects of my fall yesterday. Last night I started to feel stiff and bruised along the side of my body. This morning it is worse so I am going to do the smart thing and take it easy today! If I feel better later today I may head out for walk and maybe a slow swim but nothing more than that.
As usual just because I am not hitting it hard with my workouts today I still have goals I want to reach. I really do feel that reaching these small goals that I set for each day add up over time! They are important and should not be overlooked!
1. Drink 1 gallon of water - done
2. Take all vitamins and supplements - done
3. Stretch with foam roller - not yet
4. Stay within calorie range - done
5. Ice my knee - done
Now I need to look forward to next week and what I want to accomplish! I have about one week until my race so I need to stay strong while tapering my workouts. I want to focus on swimming and getting in at least 3 more bricks. Here is my schedule for the next week......
Friday - recovery from fall ( slow walk/swim)
Saturday - Bike 30 mins slow/ walk - 30 mins post ride
Sunday - Bike 10/Run 3
Monday - Swim 3 x 300 m repeats/ Walk 45 mins

I will come back tonight to report back on my goals for the day. Hope everyone has a successful and productive weekend!
Keep reaching and working hard!!!
