Slow Start

Posted in Rest and Recovery by Mike on August 15, 2007

This week has had a very slow start. I’ve been real sore in my legs. I had someone ask me on Monday if I had hurt myself because they thought I was limping. Today I’m almost healed up.

I skipped the rowing yesterday to go home and sleep a little extra. I’m gonna try to row today and tomorrow though in return.

Thankfully Scott Bird reminded me that the Virtual Meet is coming soon so I have to get my head right for that too.
