Having the best start to a season training-wise ever and just off my final week of SSB 2 and I go and injure my Achilles’ tendon during a hard outdoor ride last weekend. I goosed it up a short, but steep climb and felt a lot of soreness about 20 min post ride. Oddly, not immediately.
Super bummed—first cycling related injury that is forcing time off—and it has to come now, 3 weeks before Almanzo, my A race.
I have no pain, or bruising. A little puffyness and just a teeny bit of discomfort during this morning test ride. I have no choice but to rest up this week.
I need some tips, tricks and motivation to help me not freak out about possible detraining. I need to nail my recovery. Of course my thoughts immediately go to “now it’s time to plan for 2020”.
