Getting coached is on the radar, but not financially viable ATM. I may move in with my gf in 4-6months, which will cut down my rent expenses considerably. Maybe then.

On the other hand I'm not sure what I would do differently if it turned out there was some bone damage. Plus there's some internal shoulder damage on the other side that I didn't even notice until a few days ago when the more superficial stuff stopped hurting so much, and that shoulder is now the most disruptive of the injuries.
Definitely go see your ortho. The last time I broke my clavicle, the ER PA/nurse/whatever looked at the x-ray and assured me that nothing was broken. I went to my ortho for a follow-up and he brought up the x-ray on his computer and cracked up and said "C'mere, look at this!" It was obviously broken, bigger than Stuttgart. ER folks are apparently focused on getting people out as fast as possible.

Just under two hours, out on the MUP and return by road. Ran into a Cat1 friend heading home from work who had the nicest commuter bike I've ever seen. Handmade custom steel frame, hydro discs, through axle rear, panniers, hammered fenders, generator, and Di2. I have a nice commuter bike, but damn.

Sort of openers. Like, the type of openers you do 4 days before a peak race. So whatever that is. I hope it means I get to eat nutella.

Commuting is a lot harder when it's 15 degrees warmer than the average temp for Sept 1. Heavy legs today.

Yeah that probably would have been the better idea, but I work from home and sit in on conference calls and what not whilst riding

2x30' tempo later today. Got mildly frisky during the commute in this morning. My last Block of Darkness + VOGP seem to have kickstarted a bit of form for me. And that form is beckoning for me to bury myself over the next week for my last bit of pre-season tuning. Feeling optimistic about the condition I'll have for the big meat of the New England cyclocross season.

Active recovery day yesterday, so i took the cross bike out for the first time and linked up with some other cross folk. Initial thoughts ... "meh ...". I'll give it another whirl or two, but not certain we're destined for one another. I did enjoy riding on the singletrack en route to the ride though.

So you are being paid to ride a bike, and therefore you are a pro. Awesome!

Ha, I like it! Really though, it's a sad indictment of all the time wasting bloviating that goes on during meetings.

Some of my commutes home have been in the 110s in Garmin temp...

Rest week incoming. Going to go out for a spin with the wife later. At least one of you guys were hoping for an injury, looks like that's not going to happen (unless I get hit or crash, which with my recent history may happen!).

I checked out a new group ride this morning. It required me getting up 10 minutes earlier but I really liked it. Longer efforts than my usual Tuesday group ride and less riders. I would like to try it at least once a month. https://www.strava.com/athletes/366617
Then I had time for some extra miles afterwards. It wasn't as stupid hot as it has been here.

I don't want you to get hurt. Identifying risk is a huge part of prevention, not some sick desire to go "I told you so" when disaster strikes . FFS
