For the past week or so the left side of my neck and the upper back area has been giving me some serious discomfort. At first I thought it was just a strain that can come every now and again, but it lasted more than a few days and has prevented me from swimming this week. As such I set up a Chiropractor appointment for today and in typical fashion I woke up this morning feeling much better!
Anyway, I am still going to go and see what the problem is. You may remember that the day before the Eagleman 70.3 triathlon last year, I strained my neck and it has a habit of straining at just the wrong times. Hopefully the Chiropractor can see a reason why and we can make adjustments that make it a thing of the past. With any luck it will turn me into a 50-minute Ironman swimmer :-)
- Still reflecting on @gravel_worlds from this past weekend. 150miles of primo gravel in Lincoln NE with 10,000ft of climbing. It was hard but I went for it and utimately paid the price in the last hour when I cracked, really cracked. Crawled to the finish just over 9hrs after starting.....but yes it was fun! . . . . . #gravelworlds #gravelride #IFB #parvillacycles #cycling #vandessel #lincoln
- Perfect day out on the trails yesterday on the @alchemybicycles at #schaefferfarms . . . . . . #IFB #parvillacycles #MTB #xterratriathlon #mtbracing #marathonmtb
- Kind of a rough day at 6hrs at Woodstock. First 3.5 hrs were fine (even with a 10min stop for horses on the trail) and then stomach shut down. Probably related to stomach bug earlier in the week. Decided not to head out for another lap. Great trails though and a good race from Joe's Bike Shop as always. 📸: @dchammerette . . . . #6HAW #parvillacycles #mtbracing #mtbmarathon #IFB #patapsco #mtb
