Can't Catch A Break

Tuesday, July 22, 2008

Back. Not quite back yet.

My bike is ready for more action. I needed new bar tape, new shifter cable, (that's a new one) and everything re-adjusted and tightened. Incidentally, I also got new wheels, because the carbon tubulars are dead.

I'm not so ready. But I'm getting closer. My limiting factor is my back right now. Switching between standing and sitting is a little uncomfortable. (like on a couch; I haven't been on a bike yet) Also, I've had a weird phenomenon going on with my sneezes. The few times over the past few days I've felt a sneeze coming on, I knew it was going to hurt. I'd do the sharp inhale and brace for impact. It never came. Like my body could sense how much it was about to suck and canceled the sneeze. I guess it's progress that a few minutes ago I just completed my first unaborted sneeze since Sunday. That's something.

I'm hoping to race Thursday, but I'm not ruling out tomorrow at Whitnall.



  • stop sneezing. start resting. racing can wait. feel better. later.

    Heal up, good sir. And stop crashing for pete's sake. You're going to get old someday and stop healing so quickly.

    It is known.

  • Did'ja see how many hits are on 'your' Youtube video already??

    The races will be there when you're ready. Don't rush it.
