It's now been 17 days since my crash during the Chico Wildflower century.
Most of my cuts and bruises are now tolerable, but the thigh hematoma is healing very slowly. It's a funny thing, because it generally doesn't hurt much, but if I flex or extend my leg after a period of having it still, I get this bad ache builds up over 30 seconds and lasts a minute or two. Anyone seen that?
My range of motion has improved significantly, but this ache thing is only getting slightly better each day. If it's still bad after 3 weeks, I'll go see the doctor.
I think the lesson here is that I shouldn't have been the tough guy and ridden the additional 25 miles after the crash. Next time, I'll stop riding and ice it immediately.
