Post-tri joints and muscles. Holy cow. Everything hurts. So I Googled “post-race workouts” and found a bunch of message boards about how a “sprint tri is like a light workout” and therefore, “you should not need a post-race special workout.” Oh, and my favorite was posted by a guy who said that he did a light, recovery ride of 50 miles on the bike.
These crazy triathlon people.
Well, yesterday was the first day I could conceive of doing anything. My hip flexors and knees are blown to pieces. Blown to pieces from a baby triathlon. Lawd. So yesterday, I swam. A mile. In the heated, glorious pool. And it was nice.
I went to the gym with all intentions of running this morning. But my left hip hurts and I’ve been stretching all week. So this morning, I stretched. And stretched. And stretched some more. And then I got in the shower and went to work.
Tomorrow is super spinning Friday. Thank God, I need the therapy. Duathlon the following Sunday. Oy vey.
