What a shame! hopefully not severe, maybe you'll be up to speed again in a couple of weeks. Had these before?

If only they had scheduled the 100 last, maybe ok then.

O Steve!:
I am bummed for you. And you are right, pushing the performance edge as you get older becomes a balancing act.

I hope it turns around quickly and you can get back on the road!

I checked your log hoping to see some fast track times, and instead this. So sorry. Hope it isn't as bad as feared.

Fingers crossed. Really felt I was startign to peak! Anyhow shoudl have stayed focued on middle distance, had no business runnning a 100 even if I did meet the qualifying time (not too hard), national comp would have knocked me out in the heats! 400, 800 and 1500 were all within grasp. Oh well, older and wiser :)

Bummer, get better soon!
I though you were doing to much, should of would of just focused on the 800, your meat and potatoes.

It did seem like an ambitious plan. Hope you recover quickly!

Ambitious maybe, however having seen the results just posted the times were slow. Could have easily won the 800! Yep if I'd skipped the 100, would have nailed qualifying everything else from 200-1500. darn it!
Thanks for all the kind thoughts.

You will get better. Hope to see you out there in the future.

Oh man! Seems we push the envelope and our bodies explode. No warnings, no twinges, just pow! Hate to think we have to train and compete at the 90% level to be safe. Follow your own recovery advice and get back on track soon.

Think we need some research on how to keep the aging muscles at top performance. Nutrition? Supplements? Hard, easy, easy, easy training patterns? Don't want to get crazy, but there's a lot of this damage going around.
