So I’m almost looking forward to going back to work and having a set routine (almost, not quite). Because I am exhausted! I’m supposed to be feeling relaxed, but it’s been like an emotional rollercoaster with this stupid injury.
So after two full rest days on Sunday and Monday (well I went running and swimming), I had two successful kayaking sessions. A relaxed 10k on Tuesday and a full on session on Wednesday during which I felt strong and fast. And my arm was fine!
When I woke up on Thursday, it was instant pain. Even just flexing my fingers made my forearm hurt. It’s this really wierd painful, quite sharp ache. I knew I wouldn’t be able to race this weekend, which is horrible because it’s a low pressure race i’ve been looking forward to.
I kept it together most of that morning, stayed calm and messaged the girl I was supposed to be racing with in K2 (double man kayak) to cancel. Then I rang my dad to let him know, and all the sadness came pouring out.
