Back in the water

As I might have mentioned (a couple of times or more) I have been really battling with my shoulders and so have not been doing ANY training except cycling.  The have not been getting better and I have been getting frustrated! 

 

So what did I do yesterday – I went swimming.  I figured resting is not working so maybe active recover might just do the trick.  And what happened – nothing!  That’s right, nothing.  They did not feel perfect but did not feel any worse than if I had not swam.

 

So I am back swimming – but am going to take it easy.  I won’t be doing the open water swim tonight (even though it is a perfect day) and I won’t be doing the race on Sunday!  I will get back in the pool on Tuesday and see how it goes.  Yay!!!!
