so this blog will have very bad grammar and punctuation. I'm typing with one hand and it just takes too long. what I did my fall while cornering on my bike. Front tire caught some loose grit and didn't turn.. It was a choice of launch into a county drain ditch with a 15 foot drop or lean in/down on bike and hope it grabs. Nothing happened so I put my left arm out to catch myself. I broke a bone near base of thumb and something up in elbow. left hip, lower leg, and ankle bone hurting and scraped. Right now I have 2 ER splint casts which go from tip of thumb all the way up to my shoulder. And it is that agony kind of hurt, much worse than my cracked heel. The good news is that I was able to pound my handlebars back in-line with my front wheel and ride home. Then I ate some dinner because you should refuel after a workout. Then off to ER.
On my start page I have some moto-postings some are goals and some are posters/sayings. here are some and their completion.
Get back to race shape- I was on my way, got through a tough psoas, nursed some plantar faciitis, and was rebuilding strength with flexibility. also cross training heavy
get back to 176- have been stuck at 181.4 for two months. had a break through and started loosing again. last weigh in was 178.8, next morning was 181.6 with 2 splint casts on my arm. so I've lost at least the weight of my new protective gear
run certain races- this year I've done a 5k, 8k, 5 mile, half marathon race, 2 half's runs, and a half marathon trail race. runs to go 15k, marathon, and a 50 mile ultra.
run a half marathon series- 2 of 7 races down, just have to figure out how to run this weekend- the jarring on my arm might be quite painful
PMA- positive mental attitude- hanging in there with this one
And last but not least- the ER people asked me at two different times if I was on a "motor" bike, because I messed myself up that bad. I had to explain, NO, I was pedaling, I was just really moving it. My ride that night consisted of 17 miles in 90 minutes. I was aiming for 17 miles in one hour, but my fall and injuries kind of slowed me down.
