    The plumber's putty has plugged the protractive plane of platelets.

    Psssht FOO COME HERE.

    Hi everyone? How's the bike riding going?

    I was wondering how the adverse affects of riding daily can ulimitely affect your platelet's ability to instill the process of hemostasis, thus greatly increasing your chances of a bleed out per a serious case of road rash were to occur.

    I donate blood on a regular basis. I have not yet had a serious case of road rash, but if I do, I don't want it to occur on my new bike .

    I have no idea about the platelet thingy, but I do know hemocrit levels can be a good indicator of your training level.

    ...well we were just saying "thank you" to Al Gore for all the warm weather we're having in NYC. Kind of nice being able to ride around the city and eat outside in February!

    Uh oh, my blood donating patterns usually reveal that I am barely up to par . Sometimes those droplets don't sink like a stone, the way they should.

    Now that the weather's gorgeous, the riding is awesome.

    And it's funny that you pose this question.

    I had a full physical early last month, including blood work. Just talked my doc last week about the results. My LDL ("bad" cholesterol) is 91, well under the max. My HDL ("good" cholesterol) is 94 -- baseline is 41. He said that the proportion between bad and good is unusual and impressive.

    Then he said that my hemoglobin was 3:1 what "normal" is. I wondered if I was beginning to show signs of a blood disease of some kind, but he said no, it's more like the effect of training at altitude. He told me to keep doing what I'm doing. Good thing, because I don't plan to stop anytime soon.

    He didn't indicate that this would be a problem in case of road rash. I've had road rash and not bled excessively (just hurt excessively ). I'm no expert but I'd think that the extra platelets would cause you to clot quicker. You can read more about hemostasis here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hemostasis

    Has excessive bleeding been an issue for you?

    Oh snap, does my question make sense? I kind of added a bunch of similar words together and didn't really mean for it to make sense. Whoa that's gnarly.

    Say what? You strung some words together that you didn't mean to and you accidentally made sense? Were you drunk-posting?

    Actually, daily riding ( exercise) reduces the result of the INR test on my blood, thus decreasing my chances of bleedout from going down. Otherwise, my normal coumadin level will definitely increase my chances of bleedout.
