... Now what... accountable?

... WHAT THE...?
4 weeks from today is my last race of the season... then I have SIX MONTHS of off season training... plenty of time to nurse an injury back to health and continue training.
But darn it, it has been more than 1 1/2 years since my last injury and I was feeling confident... and I made a silly mistake at Boot Camp on Saturday morning.  I twisted my knee as I put my weight on it and I heard a "pop..." and the pain started.
Jeff has "grounded" me... I thought I could at least do a swim today to get in a workout and he told me I had to ice and elevate my knee in hopes for a quick recovery.  He knows how frustrated I am... and he took care of everything around the house today so I could watch my knee. 
Thank you, my sweet husband.  I pray this heals quickly and I can get back to training.  In the meantime, I'm going to kick my own butt pulling in the pool and make sure that my trainer only does upper body and core.  THIS is the great thing about triathlons... if you get injured, you have several different sports to switch the training to! :-)
Oh... and the answer to my last post... Week 78 was 6 pounds lighter than Week 131... although 131 looks much better.  Just goes to show you that the numbers on the scale are just part of the answer... but there is so much more!!!
