cardio | bike commute | hernia update

The big news is that I got a call from my doctor and after he spoke with the Radiologist I do have a hernia. I guess my hearing was somewhat selective during the ultrasound and it's actually fairly clear.

"On the Symptomatic right side, there is a broad bulging of tissue with Valsalva maneuver, including bowel anterior and inferiorly at the level of the epigastric vessel origins, which is constant with a small hernia."

The next step is to consult with a surgeon to see if this warrants fixing. Oh yeah, my PT said if I have a hernia I can't run. I guess this seals that deal. Crap.

I cheered myself up by taking pictures of bicycles on the UW campus. This gem had a frame with track dropouts (and no eyelets), a touring fork (with double eyelets), was set up as a single speed, had carbon fiber Easton handlebars and desert camouflage paint. Awesome.

I also took a new route home. It was awesome! I took my current favorite which includes Discovery Park and added Georgetown and Beacon Hill to the mix. I love it!
