It looks like the pictures that are posted in the other thread.

It's still not right and there are times when I go to reach for someting, like a jar of shine off the top shelf, where I just get a shooting pain in it. I am going back to the Dr late this month.

Hope you heal far better than I have.
Pretty much where I am right now. Surgery is not a good option. I will be doing PT and strength work to do the best I can to stabilize it.

Hi, I thought this was a training thread -- not an injury thread.

*** one mile yesterday, 6 days after ***ning two miles. Legs only hurt a little. Roger's Session at the velodrome tonight.

It looks like we may need one. BTW, I saw a random Facebook post about a Lightning Velo guy doing down on PCH Sunday.

2:45 endurance ride yesterday featuring 2x12 z4 climbs on Mount San Bruno. It was a beautiful day.

I was thinking back and in 2010 I did 5 low key hill climbs plus a lot of climbing. I had a great racing season the next year although it was too long i.e. January to October with no breaks. After two back to back hill climb races in the last two weeks with some climbs during the week, today's 2x12 seemed easy.

[MENTION=71001]Hermes[/MENTION], you can start the injury thread. Or maybe [MENTION=177758]AzTallRider[/MENTION] should.

Unfortunately, a good friend of mine and one of our charter members crashed on Sunday. I'm still not sure about what happened but he's basically okay. I'm sure his wife is a lot less than happy as she is not a big fan of his riding. Haven't seen any of his bikes on ebay yet.

I'm fairly new to these parts of the forums.
If it was my bad, I'll apologize and take one demerit.

No way...I do not want to anger the gods. I will sacrifice a virgin first. Let's have one of the new guys start one.

If we're going to censor ****ing, we ought to be blocking *****ing as well.

Back from NY. Picked up a cold on Saturday. Zero training since my *** while I was there.

Landed in MRY at 9:45. Was on the bike at 11:00. Cardio has suffered. Speed, I have, but no sustain. Of course, I could be tired! The extra three pounds I've gained doesn't help, either. I'm looking forward to getting back on the wagon!

I'm all for banning *****ing!

Ex - get well!!

My gym has this on the roof. Sunday, I went on the roof and laid in the sun on a lounge. The pool is 25 meters.

Brr... low 50's on this morning's ride. I like riding the in the cold, but having an upper body made out of K'Nex means I'm already well into my winter supply of base layers and long-sleeve jerseys.

I was wrong about my cardio being off after ten days of no bike (but ****ing). I went out on the CAAD to build a little base and just enjoy and ended up doing this. 27.3 miles, averaged 16.1 with stop lights and climbing. Climbed better than I expected, and had absolutely no problem maintaining 20+ MPH on the flats, 30+ on some mild downgrades. Next season is going to be fun!

Yeup! Knickers and arm warmers for me today. It does look like fall, doesn't it, Caloso?

Arm warmers, leg warmers and a wind vest to the base of San Bruno and then shed for the climb. Today was low cadence interval strength and adaptation day.

As I got in the elevator this morning one of my coworkers asked "You didn't ride in this morning did you?!? Brrr!" (I think it was all of 50F) I said "Are you kidding? This is perfect weather. It's my favorite time of year."

Forced layoff over. I think my back is ready for some work. JRA tomorrow, then a longer ride on Saturday, recovery Sunday. Ease back into it, then start adaptation.

Another hour and a half at sea leval on the boat yesterday. Did the first 45' working into a solid zone 3 followed with 45' of 45" seconds hard then 45" easy. I had to work into the "hard" efforts to keep the Lifecycle from doing weird things with resistance. The Iceman Cometh MTB Race on Nov. 2nd is too close to expect a result once I get back home Sunday. I believe that I have only got 8 hrs saddle time in the past two weeks. It's the off season and I'm only racing for fun, but..., its racing and there are souls to crush. On the positive end I don't give a crap about results so its a win-win situation.

Our cruise is complete and we are spending two days in Barcelona. It's a fantistic place and the people are great as compared to anywhere in Italy. During our tour of the city riding tourista city busses I picked up several 1 liter bottles of beer and am watching Spain's version of America's Got Talent. Sipping beer and learning a new language with a soccer game under the lights just outside the hotel window = living large.

Just finished a recovery week - 146 miles in a recovery week, though truth be told I went over the scheduled time by almost an hour. 1:36 at recovery pace this morning. I failed in my quest to stay under 100 watts, ended up with 104 watts average for the ride, 97 bpm, TSS 32.7, IF .46. 16:30 scheduled for next week, almost all of it at endurance pace (Z1-2).

I've been just bringing water on my endurance rides, with a Clif bar and/or gel in the jersey pocket just in case. I've got a 3:30 day followed immediately by a 4:00 day this week...should be interesting to see how that works out. I'm wondering if breakfast, fat and leftover glycogen stores will be enough to get me by the second day.

I recently switched from a 110mm stem to a 120mm one on my Look. I had started with a 100mm stem when I was fitted to it originally, when my goal was to ride centuries comfortably. The handling felt somewhat twitchy. Going to a 110 improved, but didn't cure it. With the 120, the handling has settled down to steady and solid. It honestly feels like a different bike. Chucky like!
