After 2 solid weeks of nothing but trainer time, I made it back out on the road today (SWEEEEET BABY J!!!). Temps hit the 60s, the winds hit 30 MPH+ and were a real bitch, but I didn't give a shit. I was out on my bike. The arm continues to hurt, but not quite as bad. Plus the cold (or allergies) that I appear to have come down with last night took my mind off it!
The ride was short, just about 30 miles, but it was 30 miles of me not on the f*cking trainer! The only really bad part was when I had to ride a bit on the unpaved section of Beal City Road. The jostling over mud and potholes was anything but kind to the arm and shoulder. But hey I made up for it with a SWEET tail wind once I made it to Baseline Rd. :)
Anyway, hope to get out more in the next few days and put this arm thing behind me. FINALLY. I'm sure you all are glad of that too (provided anyone is actually still reading this rag).
