This week I've been doing more of the same in the morning. Gnerally doing as much uninterupted work as time will allow. My intensity is still at 240w & @ 22 s/m. This Thursday PM I had a session of cross training - roller blading.

My kids' school has a once per month skating party which I attended and I thought that this would be a perfect opportunity to do a bit of extra work. So for about an hour I merrily went around and around the rink.

With a few breaks thrown in, after about an hour I was coming around a corner and two little kindergarten girls abruptly changed direction in front of me and the only way I could keep from barreling over the girls was to abruptly swerve right into the railing at the edge of the rink. My right shin came banging hard against a support pole.

My immediate thought was: Did I just break my leg? I couldn't have - the tibia has got to be one of the sturdiest bones in the body. I stood up. Yep, I didn't break my leg. I could stand on it. But boy did it hurt. Shaken I wobbled over to a seat in acute pain and noticed that my pants hadn't torn but blood was starting to collect on the pant leg.

I better check it out. I pulled up my pant leg and I had a gash over my shin 4.5 cm. in length 2 cm in width and about 0.5 cm deep. The fascia over the bone was clearly visible. Wow.

Wrapping up the story, I went to the Emergency Room of a local hospital and got 12 stitches. I finally got home from the emergency room at 11:15 PM last night. So this AM, I took off from my training and I hope to resume on Monday.

The moral of the story -I've trained for years on my Concept 2, hours and hours of effort, and I've never needed stitches after training on the Concept 2.

Counter moral - roller blading sure is fun.

Jim--

On the "Road to Boston" thread, Rick Bayko posted a comment about how "enforced rest," resulting from sickness or injury, often resulted in improved times after the athlete returned.

May this be your good fortune.

Tom

With 12 stitches on my right shin and a mildly swollen right lower leg, 30 minutes easy with the last 7 minutes going up and down in intensity several times to 192w and back down easy and final 1 minute at 192w.

Felt like a race horse holding back.

192w is 60% of where my 2k intensity should be right now - 320w.

I don't want to lose the training but I don't want to pull apart my stitches either. I plan to be relatively easy on myself this week. I'm usually eager to train at a relatively high watts/stroke rate ratio (SPI). But this week I'll just enjoy the low intenisty with a low SPI.

ok, my first day back on crew (I took the 1st 3ish weeks off to make sure that I got my schoolstuff all squared away)
3 x 18min pieces low rate, medium intensity.
rate changes every 2 min. 18, 20, 22 | 20, 22, 24 | 22, 24, 26 I officially hate sr 22 now and forever.
don't know how far it was, or the splits... but not stellar.

30 minutes 19 minutes easy with the last 11 minutes going up and down in intensity several times to 192w and back down easy and final 5 minutes at 192w.

Not concerned with the stroke rate. Just doing whatever stroke rate it takes to do 192w.

30 minutes with 13 minutes easy and then 7 minutes of going up and down easily in intensity several times, with 192w the high end goal and final 10 minutes @ 192w @ whatever stroke rate it takes to hit 192w.

I've noticed that during the workout the swelling at the site of inflammation on the right shin goes away. I believe that the pumping action of the muscles of the leg during the stroke pumps the fluid through the lymphatics back to the central vascular system.
