I spent the interim period between Mooloolaba WC and Sydney WCS in the suburbs of Brisbane. I was specifically in the Carindale/Carina region training with a little triathlon squad coached by Warwick Dalziel, a friend of my coach. Things were pretty nice, especially since my training really just consisted of resting a lot to recover from the beastly Mooloolaba course. Although not everything was going to plan as I sort of might be kind of a little bit…injured. Plantar fasciitis is not fun. The good news is that the problem is currently manageable so I will race Sydney WCS. Hopefully I’m not on crutches after the race. Here are some pictures from the past two weeks in Brisbane:
I had to send this into USAT’s physio team for Sydney to explain my condition. Pretty standard plantar fasciitis symptoms. Warwick has a physio background and the blue marking on the picture is where he generally worked to help alleviate the problem. When he worked on that area it brought pain on the order of 11 or 12 on a scale of 10. So the treatment wasn’t my favorite part of the day but it helped as my foot problems improved markedly during my stay.
