I’m dropping out of Ironman Coeur D Alene.
It’s a really tough thing to say and harder to write out. Many months of training are already in the bank. However, after attempting to ride and run over the past few days, my knee pain has returned in full force.
Walking is painful, biking is uncomfortable and running is impossible right now.
I am going to work with my coach to sort out the right racing plan for later in the summer and fall. For now, my number one priority is to get healthy and build strength and appropriate flexibility to keep my body that way.
The right thing to do is to allow 4-6wks for my knee to heal. I’ll be swimming up a storm in the meantime.
Below is a pic from the ferry as I type this post on the way to Whidbey Island.
