After a battle, general was walking through the battle field to see wounded soldiers. He came upon a soldier with a spear pierced into his chest, but still alive. General asked:
– Do you feel any pain?
To which soldier replied:
– Only while laughing.
That’s how it goes with injured ribs. It hurts while laughing, coughing, rolling in bed and most importantly while swimming and running. In case someone missed it, I had a traffic accident on a return trip from Porec triathlon a week ago. Luckily, I got out only with bruised ribs. Not a big problem unless you want to race shortly thereafter. And that’s exactly what I planned to do.
Challenge Barcelona was supposed to be my last race of the season and I wanted to close this great season with another good race. However, considering the course of events, maybe I already had my last race of the season in Porec.
Only thing I know for sure is that I’ll be on the beach in Callela on Sunday morning. What I’m still not sure about is whether I’ll be there as a competitor or as a spectator. Ribs are getting better each day and there are still a few days left, so I hope everything will be good by the race day.
