Injury & Recovery
In all my years of racing, I've been thankfully free of any severe injuries. For several weeks now, after the Disney Marathon, I've been bothered by a sports hernia/groin strain. It generally manifests itself after a long run so after several doctor visits, I'm being more careful with more stretching before and after training and racing. It's difficult to start slowing down just as the season is ramping up but the message as always is "listen to your body". It knows what it can do and what it needs to accomplish these tasks. So from now on, I'll be a little more careful.
