I felt flat as I have ever felt at a meet and very sore in the groin area. BAFFLED!! If I had gotten to do my running Tuesday or had stretched at least two days I know I would have felt OK. It's unacceptable for this to happen and I have to get better control of my schedule and I will. I'm PISSED OFF!!
OK, so I took a ton of jumps in warm up just in case I didn't get to jump later. I felt like CRAP and the flare on the outside of my knee that started coming up in Reno, and jumped on me more at San Diego, was on me a little during the warm up. As I got moving for the meet it had my attention. By the end it was killing me so I will have to get it shot with cortisone Wednesday. The last shot lasted eight months so that's not so bad. BTW - I took two low jumps, both makes, in the meet and stopped.
Fortunately after this trip I am home for awhile and my upgraded training will be my only priority. Travel and out of town work visitors will be over and I can get control of my life again. Today I'm deflated and disappointed but more committed than ever that I am no exception to the rules. I need to find a way to get the work done or have no one but myself to blame. I'm not hurt so tomorrow will be a great day to destroy my body with a double long training session. Thanks for being here. Bubba
