I've been off my bike for several months due to shoulder tendonitis. I caused this by lowering my bars too much. If I'd stayed fat, I wouldn't have been able to ride low enough to hurt myself
Last Friday I decided it was time to try the bike again. I used my Fixed Gear as it's less aggressive, less bar drop, than my roadie. It was okay but still hurt a little. Friday night I flipped the stem up to raise the bars and rode the bike as a warm up for Saturday's 5K run event. All was well, no shoulder discomfort and set a PR for the 5K at 29:12.
Now comes the dangerous part. I've avoided the local skateboard complex as I've felt it wasn't safe at my weight. I promised myself once I got below 200 I'd give it a go. Saturday after the 5K, at the park where the skateboard complex is, I had my skateboard in my car but didn't have my skateboard shoes. Had fun for about 4 hours and then proceeded to break my right foot.
Back on the sidelines.
