Shoulder Setback…Back to the Drawing Board for 2020 Goals

Got confirmation that I need shoulder surgery on my other (right) side.  It was the Spartan Spring race last May – I knew it was hurt but hoping it would recover and just kept aching.  MRI confirmed a few weeks ago with similar damage as my left – not a huge tear but one that won’t heal by itself.

Super deflated initially as I was so looking forward to working strength and distance and now figuring out how to adapt my plans for next year.  Spartan races are out but I found an alternative 50 mile, 15000′ elevation race in Sept that will be my new goal.

Surgery planned early March as we had already planned a scuba trip to the Philippines in February.  That puts any upper body work out until September.
