Warning: this is a rant/whine post
This morning I hit 162 on the scale, which is the lowest I've weighed in... like... ever, or maybe since I was in Jr. High.
But I can't ride. I've been off the bike for nearly 7 weeks because of emergency surgery and subsequent complications. I started riding a couple of weeks ago, and despite being extremely weak and lacking in stamina, I felt like I was on my way back.
But last Tuesday I had to have another tube installed, so there's no way I can ride a bike for at least another couple of weeks.
The summer is wasting away. I've missed several of my favorite annual rides already, and it's likely now I won't be able to make Bike Virginia at the end of the month.
I'm as skinny as I'll ever be in this lifetime, and I should be motoring up the mountains. Instead I'm sitting here packing gauze into my leaking belly and dreaming of bike rides I can't do...
Sorry for the whine. You were warned
