visited the ortho for the one week check-up...thumb looks great - you could hardly tell where the break was located. dr said that i'm cleared to ride outside now, just to be careful and not fall on it again! 3 more weeks and it can come off!! what a great birthday present that will be!!!! :)
i will be so glad to get this cast off! it's very irritating. my back and sometimes the ribs are still fairly sore. my back, near the spine/shoulder blade hurts the most. sometimes the ribs will hurt under my right arm. laughing, coughing, sneezing, etc still hurts, but not quite as bad as 10 days ago.
i haven't been on the bike in 10 damn days. i bought a trainer at performance after the last cx race (1/11) and put it together monday evening, but hurt my back/ribs more pulling it out of the box. i tried to ride but, the back hurt too much to do so. i plan on riding saturday afternoon even though it's supposed to be extremely cold around here this weekend. i have to get back on the bike!! i can't lose the fitness gains i've made over the past year. i plan on getting bundled up well and just doing the short 15mi loop around clayton - fairly flat except for few hills right near 42.
that's about it for now.....
