I now have 18 months of solid 9+ hrs plus per week training with no injury or illness, that is until 2 days ago.

I had a small blister on my little toe from running sock-less in a tri. It was perfectly intact so I covered with a plaster and continued training. Next day I woke in agony with it still intact but clearly infected. Can hardly walk.

To top that too many sweaty turbo sessions has also given me jock itch and a boil on my arse.

I now have my biggest number of missed sessions in a long while because of stupid little things.

Hopefully I should be able to get some swims in at the weekend.

Anyone else been grounded by ridiculousness?

Treading on stuff.

Walking round the house barefoot trod on a sewing needle. It caught in the pile of the carpet is such a way that it punctured my heel vertically and then snapped as I put my full weight down. Four visits to hospital culminating in a 30 minute operation to remove the little bugger. No running for 1 month.

And separately I trod on a sea urchin, got badly infected toe.

After a pretty hard weekend of running and cycling in early May, my knee was really stiff, but seemed OK by the weekend, so I ran Parkrun as 25 minute pacer - all OK, on Tuesday Did a very hard training session - knee now much worse, took 2 weeks off, and started running gently, 2 10km runs at 8min/mile all fine, knee a little stiff, but not overly concerned..... then tripped over on the way to breakfast, twisted knee and then went for a run. Knee definitely not OK any more - first week I couldn't even swim. 2 weeks later, I am swimming and cycling, but running still feels like a million miles away

Not Triathlon related, but 3 years ago, just before I was due to take part in an international windsurfing competition. I was on holiday in Spain and rigging up my sail, modern sails require a huge amount of force to put the required amount of tension on them, I was on the beach and had left my rigging tool on the campsite (200m away), rather than going back I attached a steel bar the rope, and put my leg on the bottom of the mast to get enough leverage.... unfortunately my calf muscle was not up to the combined force of my leg and arms pulling the rope tight, and ended up taking 4 months out of almost all physical activity with a torn calf, made the rest of the camping trip fun too!

I know that one from when I shot Archery at university. I tried to string my bow "like the pros" just using my own body and without the stringing tool. The arm of the bow popped out and smacked me in the face. No major injury except to my pride.

Ouch, I winced when reading the needle one.

Diagnosed with a slap lesion in my left shoulder when I ran into a tree sprinting to a finish at my local sprint.

Emptying the kitchen rubbish bin last night, I pulled up on the bin bag and the bin lifted off the floor with it. I gave it a little shake and the bin promptly dropped onto my foot, bruising my big toe so that I can't run today Rolling Eyes

I have a really annoying shoulder injury that's hampering my swim.

Pretty annoying as I'm sure its from the way I sleep, I keep going to sleep in one position and end up being woken by the pain in my shoulder after switching positions while asleep. Twisted Evil

Its not too serious in the pool, but its worrying more than anything.

disaster for me last nigt. Came back from a 2hr ride with no problem, 10 mins after getting home i bent down to put a drink on the coffee table and BANG, searing pain between my spine and hip. Laid up now, can't walk and have to crawl.

Dr sent a script for elephant tranquillisers. Hopefully it's just a 'thing'. Evil or Very Mad

This thread could quite possibly turn in to a classic... Smile

My worst damage is just from getting older and not admitting it, but closest call was a tyre lever that broke and a bit hit me just next to the eye.

Ready to hop into hot bath after ice cold MTB night ride.
Starck bo!!ock naked apart from socks.
Went to whip socks off with thumb in usual super slick fashion.
Forgot about themal inner sock..thumb got hooked behind it and bent over and back with audible crunch.
Couldnt touch thumb leaver on MTB for weeks let alone push it...
OH still laughs about this 20 years on and the sight/sound of this one.
Hopping/squealing around in nothing but 1.5 pairs of socks....
