This Can Stop Now!
The nagging pain in my left side that crosses my back, shoulder and rib cage can stop now. Please? It could be worse, I mean it only hurts when I breath hard, lay on my left side or bend over. As long as I don't do that, I'm gold!
The vexing question is HOW did I do it? You just KNOW it was from something stupid. I keep trying to back track and the ONLY thing I can come up with dates back to Saturday's ride at Boyce. With a few miles to go I took a corner too tight and got hung up on a vine. The vine swung me off the trail a bit and I went through some mild gymnastics to keep the Mamasita up and out of the poison/thorns/trees. I guess I could I have strained a muscle, nerve, or fagoogally gland during said gymnastics? Who knows? What I DO know is that after a week of ride time c*ck blocks I will not be stopped on Thursday evening.
I also can not express how much I am waiting for the weekend. Work has been chaos, free time has been chaos, my body feels like I got hit by a freaking truck, I can't sleep and I feel about as much like an athlete as the 300 lb., SUV driving, Big Mac eating, far right voting, cigarette smoking masses that pass me on the road, wielding chubby middle fingers and shouting expletive strewn remarks that question my sexual preference because I'm on a bike!
To sum it up. I feel like shit. BUT I won't tomorrow night, 'cause I'll be basking in the warmth of post ride glow. Even if it's only for a few miles, my ass WILL be in the saddle tomorrow. Sweet!
Sorry for the rant above. I need sleep.
