Ok, fine!!

It's time to face it..I can no longer use and abuse my body without consequences like I could 5 years ago. Over the last week I've returned to riding my road bike (it had been awhile) and of course I've been using a huge gear trying to build some strength back into my legs in a desperate attempt to maybe squeeze out some more power before the Lumberjack 100 next week (which is a powerhouse's course..so I've heard). Well that, combined with maybe not being recovered 100%, combined with putting out two maximal efforts (on someone else's bike) over the weekend, combined with the road fit being different than the mountain bike fit, has left me with a pain in the butt. Literally. I went to see Dr. Josh Glass this morning, who is going to once again save my butt, literally. He says I've strained my piriformis, SI joint, and hamstring. Great. Luckily he says with a massage from Collette tomorrow, another appointment with him on Friday, some foam rolling, icing, and light stretching I should be fine in a few days. Phew. Unfortunately, that does mean only short easy rides again for a few days...AARRRGGGH!

Glad that it's going to be ok!

Just think of it this way. You are going to be rested and ready to tear off everyone's legs for Lumberjack!

Hmm. I was going to say something like "ha! wait til you hit your 40s!" but that would just make me feel old, so,rest up, stretch - you still have 9 days!
