Worked a solid 12.5 hours today. Another 12.5 hours tomorrow.
Today while working, I started to feel slight, sharp pain on the top of my right foot, the same place where about 3 years I got a stress fracture from training inappropriately for a 5k (that I never did because of the injury, and gave up running ever since). This was a self-diagnosis as I was a broke college student at the time.
Anyway, I think today my shoes were just too tight because it feels okay now. But I got to thinking, I need to be really, really careful not to over exert myself because I could easily get injured and then not be able to do the triathlons. I am putting a lot of time, and especially money into this, so that would be kind of devastating!!
What are your best tips for preventing injury when training for a race or something new?
I gave in and paid for my registration for Trek Women's Triathlon Series at Walt Disney World Resort~!
