yesterday was day 5 of no workouts. picture me stomping feet starting to go stir-crazy. but there are little victories everyday. this morning with the string trick from my facebook friends' suggestion i finally got my wedding ring off. so thankful for that as my hands have been so swollen and it concerned me a lot. the ring also has some road rash.
today i also made the drive into work all by myself which was no small feat with one sorta ok arm, a 40 mile one way commute, a gas tank filling and a long walk to the office carrying a heavy back pack over one shoulder with my laptop. bumps suck and have i mentioned how much i despise potholes.
potholes are my nemesis. they ruined st patty's day with my car breakdown in the ghetto and now this!
other random thoughts-
my watch broke so i am gonna treat myself to a new one. i was due anyways.
my garmin 305 which was on the bike is mia :-( so guess it went sailing into somewhere unknown. we went back last night to the sight to check, but no dice. guess i will be shopping amazon.
mv from bike authority and my good friend cv made the long drive across town to visit yday. of course i was happy to see them and they even brought me some kick arse beer (an ipa of couse) but even better, mike looked over my bike and it appears damage is somehow limited to only the front wheel....oh and now the front fork....so thankful for that! so hopefully i will have that bike set up on a stationary trainer before weeks end.
tonight i think i got the husband conned into walking / hiking with me. must do something!
so i know everyone wants to see pics so here goes.....
