Toggle Commented Feb 13, 2012 on First trail run at Today is Not That Day
Glad you're getting it checked out! You're gonna crush Kaiser! 1 comment on the holding off swimming. I don't think it would hurt to get wet, just do a light session. No timing, just a buoy and casual speed. You'll get a sense pretty quickly whether the shoulder will dig it or not. I got in the water 11 days after the hernia surgery. The trick is just to listen to your body and not overdo it. It may, in fact, help more than it may hurt. :)

Uggh. I'm so sorry Jenn. Sounds like we're having similar late summers. I raced the Chicago Triathlon w/ a sinus infection, chest cold and what turned out to be an inguinal hernia (having surgery tomorrow). Pretty much scratching the rest of the season. Thinking about Hawaii 70.3 again though. You considering a repeat appearance? Rest well and get better. J.

I'm not sure it's the case for you but I have found that sometimes I change my pedal stroke and hammer or not releasing on the up-stroke. I keep constant pressure on the balls of my feet and my big toes. I had this for the first 1/2 of Hawaii 70.3. My big toes were phasing in and out of going numb versus feeling like the were on fire when I got circulation back into them. I also realized in retrospect that I strapped my shoes on too tightly. Maybe that... The thing that has a massive impact on my glutes is saddle position. I've found that I have less tightness when I ride in proper position way up on the hozzle of the saddle and fully resting on my elbows in aero. Anything else sends full jabs of agony at distance. It's painful to ride in the upfront position, but I'll take taint pain over muscle pain any day (hello chamois butter :).

Congrats on a great race Jenn! The run was SUCH a soul-crusher! Hope you do it again next year. I certainly want to go back. That course and I have a score to settle ;)
