Today I had a one hour easy run. Due to the boo-boo from last night, I didn't feel up to running today and thought it best to rest. When I landed on my leg, I slightly tweaked the muscle. But!
I didn't just sit around, I actually made sure to walk and move as much as I could to help fight the stiffness in my leg. Last night after cleaning the wound, I sprayed some Neosporin on it and made sure to hold my leg slightly bent to dry, so the wounds wouldn't tear open when I moved around today.
Day two of healing.
So I contacted my coach Chris Hauth today to tell him about the crash and sent him the bloody picture from yesterday's blog. His reply:
"Looks like you can still ride and run and swim, no?"
When I asked if it was okay to swim with this kind of wound, he said:
"Why not, chlorine kills all."
