Happy Easter!! I've switched jobs now so will be more regular on my postings! Now to a race report from good Friday Oxford sprint!
Lead up to the race was poor. Fractured coccyx and hairline fracture on my iliac crest. Travelled up the night before with my boyfriend and his mum (first time meeting!). Didn't eat great, didn't sleep much.
Swim- awful! Took me 1 more minute than usual. I inhaled some water on the first lap. Just wasn't feeling it.
Bike- amazing! It was cold and windy, which sucked. But I flew on my Tri bars.
Run- bilateral quad cramping anyone??? Never had It before. Never want to again! But I didn't stop, just shortened my stride.
Result.... First in 16-26 age category. 13th female overall.
Thanks guys. I am going ok.. still on som heft pain meds but moving forward. I will have an MRI in the next week or so to see if they need to do anything with my hip. They are not sure whether it was fracutres before (this is the sore hip) or if I did it when I came off. I slipped off the pedal when I was practicing taking in/out feet of the tri shoes. Came down on the tip of the pedal with all my body weight.... then I puked
Anyways... frustrated that I can't really do much at the moment. Just surviving work!
