It's been about a month since my last ride. Doctor's orders. But. I met with him yesterday and he pretty much told me it was either surgery that likely won't work or daily pain. So, I'm just opting for the daily pain and will now jump right back into my routine of riding, ice, heating pad. Good times. The bmx season is lost for me this year. I ride so infrequently that I think there is no hope for improvement. I'm still going to try and squeeze in another race or two if possible. I love being on that GHP so any chance I can find to ride I will. Speaking of loving that GHP...I can't tell you how many times I find myself contemplating candy apple green colored purchases. Bright shoes, bright sunglasses... You name it.
On a sad note (more sad than the ineffectiveness of the 3 epidurals injections to my spine) I found a career ending crack in the headtube of my Casati road bike. I've never owned a bike that I was as instantly comfortable on. But, unless I want to wind up with a fork through my heart it's time to let her go.
A dark day indeed
