Matt, being himself of course, had a treat for me. It was a mountain biking video with a lot of crashes. I guess I should have expected something like that from Grasshopper. This along with his comments like...Bill will staying in the saddle today. There he is, bad knee, broken ribs, beta-blockers. Hey Bill! Next week you can bring your medical history and we could easily have a one hour show on the big screen. Class really sucked this morning! I can't believe I got up at 4:10 for that. I was totally uncomfortable the entire time. There is not much I can do physically that doesn't cause me to experience pain.
A guy who was in class pulled my aside afterward and cautioned me to take it easy. Apparently he is a physical therapist. He told me that the more I push myself now the longer it will take to heal. He said there is a strong likelihood of me just making it work.
So, I guess I'll be forcing myself to lay off for a bit and see what happens. This is not the way I wanted to start my summer. Heal now.... ride later.
I'm watching the 2003 TDF. Tyler Hamilton (doper) riding the entire race with a broken collar bone. Man, I'm a wimp!
