Brain sprain

The doc tells me that I sprained my hip.

That just sounds weird to me. I know the hip is a joint (or two) and all. But for some reason that sounds funny. Sort of like saying that I sprained my skull. Which I think I have done.

But weird or not, its a 2nd degree sprain. I don't even know how many degrees there are in spraindom, so I have no idea what that means. But I don't like the sound of it one bit.

So now I gotta do stretches and get lots of massages (yummy). And I'm not supposed to walk. Oops.

I also really need to take oV's spycam into the doc's office with me next time. That way I can do an xbunnyish post of the goofy gym shorts they make me wear. I kind of like the shorts actually. I may have to find a way to ummm accidentally wear them out.

And all this laughing at myself is my way of coping with not being able to race Cat's Hill. I finally got brave enough to want to do this race....and I really wanted to do it. Once I make up my mind about something, I'm good to go and gung ho.

But now I am just gung hobble.

I tell you what though. Watching Sarah come back and do the race that she couldn't finish a year ago...that was nice. She's such a fighter. Solid. I am glad she's back and I want to unhobble myself so I can get back there and race with her.

My goals have had the rug pulled out from them lately. I wanted to finish Sea Otter - Bzzzzt. I wanted to race at MTB Nationals - Bzzzt. I wanted to race Morgan Hill - Bzzzt. I wanted to race Cat's Hill - Bzzzzt.

So now I am left sort of goal less and lost.
And the injury means I am just riding, not training.
And I am going to Kern just for the experience and bellaship of it all.
And I am having the best time lately.
Just riding.

But I gotta get me some new goals soon.
And some new gym shorts.

Goal #1 - 8 Hours of Lake Sonoma, 2 person team - you and oV. I'm sure there is an amazing number plate just waiting to be done.

Goal #2 - D-ville. Don't need to say anything else.

Massage good. Oh yeah!

How did you manage to sprain your hip? I can only imagine...

was it an early honeymoon? sexercizing?

(technically there are three degrees to spraindom)

Oh no! I'm sorry to hear it! Everything heals, but be sure to follow docs orders. Get better soon; there's always cyclocross season.

Well crap, what a bummer. Heal up -- you gotta get back in there with us soon! Who am I gonna chase now?

Though, yeah, the massage aspect...mmm.

Hmm, well coming from someone who has strained calf muscles, and hamstrings, I gotta tell you the massages the physical therapists give are not really so much on the "oh boy!" side.

You have all my sympathy VB.

mmm...but you haven't met my massage therapist.

My mom is just too much of a worry wart. It would have been too exhausting to go there.
