i've been trying to wean myself
from the medication the doctors
had been giving me.
i was fairly certain that the pain
would not be so great
that a tough guy like me
couldn't suffer through without help.
after doing a short velodyne workout yesterday,
and driving on a cold, windy day in a 50-year-old
volkswagen, my body said "fuck you, dude. you want
tough guy points, here ya go."
well, after spending the afternoon with a patient 2-year-old
granddaughter tapping me on the knee, saying,
"poppa, wake up. WAKE UP, poppa!"
i was ready for a cocoa and warm blanket.
instead, i got a nicely over-stuffed chair, ottoman, and comforter.
i awoke this morning, stumbled into my daughter's kitchen and
fired up the coffee maker, and took an assessment.
my ribs still hurt like hell, my shoulder was still drooping,
although it was cooperating a little more each day.
everyone SAID i should just go to the hospital yesterday,
but i had too much to do yesterday and today, so there you have it...
but TODAY? nope. three hours of work, and i could pop some relief, and call it a week.
you folks who can hop on your bikes and ride better do it, and be glad you can.
there's one guy here who would LOVE to trade his vicodin for a cliff bar and water bottle.
until then, though...
it would seem,
but she's just not believing that no one's with her...
unbelievable, is my impression!!
this is what the commentator said:
13:18 CEST Yesterday's races showed that this course
favors keen sprinters who aren't afraid to be aggressive.
Women's winner Marianne Vos attacked several times coming into the finale,
but still managed to win the sprint by several bike lengths.
Oddly enough, Vos doesn't even have a trade team - she rides for a club.
Surely she's gotten a few offers overnight!
[donny? can we find something to offer her?]
hard work, once again, the key to success on a bike.
+ + + + +
see? it's all in creating the proper karma--

troubling day, today was.
right shoulder and neck are stiff,
showering is a challenge, and a slow-motion procedure.
i am making lists of things to do,
feel free to give me feedback.
