The bad news. So I tore my quadricepts tendon in the first week of April. In the beginning of June my physical therapist told me I still had 12 to 16 weeks before full recovery. There goes the race season and my aspirations for a regional championship win. (gnawing off arm)
The good news. Sometimes time off from your sport can help you expand your horizons and skill base. (re-attaching arm) I tried out some paddle sports to work my upper body and I'm now addicted to sea kayaking. It's something my wife likes too. Of course, I got home and immediately looked up the biggest challenge I could find (within budget) that involves mountian biking and kayaking and came up with the Jay Challenge. (building training plan for next year)
I think paddle sports can be a great way to stay in shape while recovering from a lower body injury.
