Injury update

by on November 7, 2011

I didn’t see this coming on Saturday when I fell.

The last two days have been full of pain.  The most troublesome is the chest pain in my right ribs.  I can breathe deeply without pain, but laughing, coughing, and any movement involving my “core” is extremely painful.  That means transitioning from standing to sitting or the reverse, turning in bed, bending down to pick up something, etc.  When I don’t move, I’m fine.  My left knee is swollen and painful to the touch.  The road rash on my right elbow and right knee only hurts when I bump it.  I’m better this morning, and I anticipate riding tomorrow.

Here are some photos of a new cleat compared to my dangerously worn cleat.  Never let them get this bad!

  1. Heal quickly, you’ve got a lot invested for Saturday.

  2. A scary story, which has caused me to run to my garage and inspect my shoes. I’m glad you are on the mend and here’s hoping you will be back to your old self in short order.
