I'll spare you the photos

Let's just say that fresh sand and cornering don't go too well together. And road rash sucks. And once you dislocate a joint (skiing accident, 1994? 1995?) it will dislocate easier for the rest of your life. The bike's got some new scrapes, too. It was about time for new bar tape anyway.

But hey, I still had some of that wonderful Tegaderm stuff in the office, and a co-worker had some Aleve. I think I got my shoulder re-set fine. If it gives me too much grief today I'll probably go see a doc after work.

Ah, Tuesday. How's yours going?

It's not too bad now, I'm feeling a bit better. I think the morphine (err I mean aleve, lol) is kicking in. Strange, though, that the road rash on my leg doesn't hurt. Maybe because it's the same spot that always gets thrashed, and I just don't have much left in the way of nerves there. The rash on my forearm is making typing kind of uncomfortable though.

Sorry to hear about the road rash. Think of it as a Badge of Honor. (Naw, that probably doesn't help.) Adsense seems to disagree with the sparing of photos, they suggest "Turning Moments into Memories" with a portrait ... they also think you should contact an area Injury Attorney. I clicked them for you. Maybe that 11 cents will help ease the pain.

Man, sorry to hear about your wreck. Hope you heal quickly!

Does this mean you have to suspend your push-up regimen? :-)

I meant to post a push-up update after my camping trip. The training was too aggressive, and I re-started from Level 1 with better luck. I was doing okay with that until this happened, so yes, no more 100 push-ups for a few weeks. I will likely make a THIRD attempt at 100 push-ups starting in September, maybe earlier.

Hey, sorry to hear you crashed. Sounds like you came out all right,

Remember, tuck and roll...it's not just for upholstery any more.

I knew in my heart of hearts that it was important to keep my hands and feet inside the vehicle until it comes to a complete and final stop. I know when you crash, staying attached to the bike usually keeps things from getting toooooo messy. I just couldn't stop the reflex that made my right arm move out to "catch" me. I'd say "I need more practice" but I think I'd rather not practice bike crashes.

Yeah, crashing is never a skill one wants to practice...
