The race at Whitewater was my last of the season. Though I planned to race a few more times this year, Whitewater was my last race for the Southeast Region point series.
So, the season was over, which was one aspect of my training and racing to consider. The more important aspect was and still is my hips. It was time to finally stop and deal with the injury that has been nagging me since May. Time for rest and to consult with some experts and build a plan for corrective action.
Injuries suck, but I can only practice denial for so long.
More on my progress coming soon…
