It’s hard to believe that nearly a month has passed since I got stung by the wasp. The puncture site did get infected and, as a result, my leg endured a mild celulitus. Thankfully, my doctor prescribed a course of antibotics right away.
My leg is now back to normal with only a pinpoint area of hard tissue where the stinger entered the skin. I took about a week break from my training. Shortly after I resumed my training runs, YaYa and I decided that the timing of the Joshua Tree Half Marathon was far from ideal. So, we changed races to another VR race in May 2023.
In the meantime, I am enjoying a more reasonable mileage build coupled with powerzone rides on my Peloton bike.
