Broken spoke

I am not sure if  I ever had that happen to me. When we were on our training ride this morning a friend riding behind me stopped me after 10 miles to check out my rear tire wobbling. Turns out one of my spokes broke causing the rear wheel to be unstable. ( left to right ) We cut the ride short and limped back to base . After a quick shower I took the wheel off and drove to the shop to get it fixed..

Not the saturday I had imagine specially with only 1 week left before the McAllen Arbor Day 100k ride.

Jump forward a day to Sunday. I picked up the wheel, went home and installed it. no more wooble but now it seems like the wheel isn’t round anymore. So Monday after work I get to ride 10 miles to the shop to have them take another look.
