As some of you know, this season is my first season racing as a professional. However, I’ve had to forgo my first three races due to an injury. Six weeks ago, I had a little spill on my bike that resulted in a small fracture of my wrist and some soft tissue damage. I have been in a cast for about 2.5 weeks…only five more days to go though! Since the fall, I have not been able to swim. However, this hiatus from the pool has allowed me to focus on my bike and run…a lot! I am not able to ride outside, but have been putting in a lot of time on the Computrainer and using my new Quark for my workouts…sometimes twice a day! I am worried about getting back into the pool, but I know the time I’ve put in on the bike and the miles on the run will pay off!
With this injury, I have looked to Hammer Nutrition for a lot of help! I have been using Tissue Rejuvenator three times a day and Vanilla Whey Protein powder in my smoothies and at night before bed. Both products have helped me recover from my injury and accelerated the healing process. I truly believe they have made a difference. I also continue to enjoy Strawberry Recoverite following my hard workouts.
Back in the pool 24/7J in a less than a week and hopefully back to racing in a few short weeks!
