With only 8 days to go and with what happened on Monday, the exercise intensity decreased somewhat. I also had Tuesday off work, just to recover from the shock. I had a great Nana nap, which I never do, so doing this probably actually helped out with me being able to complete my workout in the evening. I also thought if I had anything serious wrong with me, I would find out during gym class, since no one would let me do anything on Monday night.
After discovering a bruise (nothing major) from were the car hit me, I thought I best get everything checked out to ensure it is in all good working order. So instead of seeing a doctor, I went to see my Osteopath, Ben at Mosiac Health, he has done wonders with my knee and ankle, so thought he would be my best bet on if I had any further injuries that would have prevented me to compete in a couple of weeks. Apart from the bruise, I was extremely lucky to walk away with nothing serious, so I was pretty happy about that.
After a full day of rest on Wednesday, it was back in the gym today. Concentrating on the sprint training, focusing on turns and take off, rather than the sprints. I don't want to de-accellerate the training too much, otherwise I won't really know what to do with myself. I will be focusing more on stretching and rolling in the next week and will probably be reducing the intensity rather than cutting them out. I am not 100% sure exactly what we should or shouldn't be doing that will help prepare us the most for the event, since it is the first time that we have done anything like this. I don't think cutting out exercise completely will help. I guess we will live and learn and hope that we have a better idea IF there is a next one.
