Tomorrow: forecast calls for 72F, Sunny, little wind!!! i've been waiting for weather like this for over a month!
Tomorrow: 6pm, the "fast" group ride sets off on my favorite rides of the week!!!
Today: I am struggling in pain - either pulled a back muscle at the base of my right rib cage, or something is up w/ my kidney!!!
Tomorrow:HTFU and ride, or rest to give the back a chance to heal?
more info: pain goes from "0" to uncomfortable to painfully stabbing when i take a deep breath...started saturday morning (i think i tweaked my back sleeping - signs of age!) at first, it just felt a bit uncomfortable at my right oblique when taking deep breaths, but it got progressively worse during the weekend...i did get two moderate rides during the weekend (36 and 42 miles) and it felt ok even on the drops (yesterday's ride did get uncomfortable when taking deep "belly" breaths after a hard effort)
right now the plan is to take it easy tonight use a heat patch, pain killers, and see how i feel tomorrow...
when do you guys draw the line in between htfu and being stupid?
