My knee is pretty much healed from my crash two weeks ago, and I can ride fine now.

But my arms are sore from doing manuals and hops for a few hours yesterday and today.

Heh, yeah. I guess it's the time of year for most of us to dust off our bike skills and start riding a lot, and that comes with a couple injurys

Don't ask Merton this question. He's likely to misinterpret.

As always!

Ankle is still screwy from biting it on a downhill a few months ago. All cut up from the race today, and big knots on my shins

EDIT: Forgot to add my other ankle (which I broke a few years ago) is hurt from landing a drop too hard with clipless last week

After two days of riding, 17 miles on dirt, 26 miles on pavement, my ass is sore and my legs are smoked. Going through a rock garden, some jackass stopped in front of me and sent me flying package first into my steerer tube. After the sick feeling went away, I have a huge bruise right next to my privates that hurts every time I sit down or stand up.

Still dealing with a three-month-old ankle injury that's just not going away. It's fine when I'm on the bike but, when I have to get off to hike-a-bike (like I did 5 times yesterday while doing knee-deep water crossings), then it's not so nice.
