Swimming 20:54 [1]

Mostly with leg buoy.

Saturday Apr 13 #


Day just completely off, recovering. I mean, a fair bit of crutch-walking just to deal with life, but not going to log all of that. Tried easing up on the ibuprofen dosage a bit, but think I still need close to maximal dose. Maybe in a few more days...

Bought swim goggles and a swim cap because I couldn't find the ones I know I have *somewhere* in the house. But it's hard to look for things when you can't really move. And had Tom look in the places I thought they might most obviously be.

I think it's pretty clear that I'll have to petition instead of race team trials. What a bummer. I don't know how this will effect everyone else trying out via team trials and/or petitioning, but figure it might help to be public knowledge.

Cycling 30:00 [1]

Hmph. This may have been a bit much.

Think I've actually pulled my piriformis muscle, not disturbed my SI joint. Not really sure if that is better or worse. Biking didn't hurt, but then things seemed to hurt more afterwards, so will rest a few more days before trying biking again, then will ease more into it. Gr.

Hiking 24:00 [1]

Strength 5:00 [1]

8 AM

Hiking 15:47 [1] 0.42 mi (37:35 / mi)

Crutch-walking car to physics to gym. Slowed down by approximately a factor 2 over normal walking pace.

Strength 5:06 [1] 0.07 mi (1:12:38 / mi)

Stretching really, but whatever. Need to stretch and if I count it in my log, maybe I'll do more of it.

Hiking 10:21 [1] 0.28 mi (36:56 / mi)

Crutch-walking from Commons back to physics.

Cycling 30:00 [2] 8.84 mi (3:24 / mi)

Recumbent exercise bike. Made less boring by chatting with a colleague for a bit. But! The good news is that this doesn't hurt. Could even probably do intervals on it without injury pain.

Swimming 14:32 [2]

Well, turns out I can swim without even a leg buoy and my injury feels ok! That's encouraging. But yeah, not in great swimming form. Felt great to at least get a small workout in.

Think the roughest part of this on the injury was actually getting over to the gym and back on crutches.
