Well, well, well…were should I start…Hmmm….Okay I’ll start on the 12 rounds boxing match last Monday.
Last Monday we did a morning swim and two runs in the afternoon; a 12nn hill repeats and the main event of the day, 12 rounds (km) of fast running. To cut the long story short, for 9 rounds I was doing great, I was able to take the punches that Tereza M. throws at me. Then at the 10th round, I was caught off guard, down goes LC ..hahaha . TKO win for Tereza M. Nice run Tereza.
The day after the horrifying knockout that I received, I was on autopilot the whole morning. After the swim workout, we have to do a long easy ride. I went down the golf course, flying with my two weeks old P2C.
I was going too fast on the downhill not really thinking. I’ve been here training for almost a year and I know every crack, pot hole and of course SPEED BUMPS! I know the second speed bump down from Binictican is a little tricky…I was going toooooo fast!
3 Reason why I’m going toooo fast! (I’m keeping it simple, Doc)
1.) I’m not thinking at all!!!!
2.) I’m so excited to get the fatigue out of my legs for the upcoming training on track (The Big Birthday party).
3.) I was wearing my favorite cycling jersey (2008 Polo Tri gear)… I’m so comfortable with it, I always, always push the pedal when I wear it. now, it has a little hole
Next thing I know I was in the pavement, with my two weeks old cervelo! I immediately got up and check the frame. Good, not a single scratch in my P2C… next, check the collarbone, still intact. Then, the pain in my forearm, hips and shoulder starting to kick in. Well, my forearm is still a little swollen, my shoulder is hurting (nothing broken. Thank God) and just a bruised knee.
So I rode to the TBB shop to fix my handle bar and wheel facing opposite direction, clean my wounds and finish my 3 and half hour ride.
Ah…speed bumps…this little things can really hurt if your not focus on what your doing. I knew better…
Well, I’m doing fine. I’m just a little itchy to start training properly.
