Yikes, my weight is climbing. :( It would be nice to keep it at 180 so I only have to lose five pounds in the spring, more than that and it's just too hard. Not fun.
My right knee started attracting attention to itself on the second flight of stairs this morning but then it plateaued out and did not get any worse I continued. Ryan D and I have been at this for three weeks now and his company is great. We talk about all kinds of things from local politics to team politics to bike racing politics.
So far we are just walking the stairs two at a time at a relatively fast pace, I hope to start running then in November if my f'ing knee ever gets any better. In case I have said it enough, this stupid knee injury is SUCKING.
Since my knee was not so bad on the stairs I pushed my luck and went for a lunch time walk. It started acting up pretty much right away and of course it was the worst at the half way point so what could I do? I had to walk back to the office. More slowly.
My ride home started out fine for a change. It was really pleasant out, still nice and warm when I left the office. I head over to Fremont, across the bridge and up an dover Dexter. As I was climbing up Capitol Hill on Pike I stood up to go when the light turned green, managed about 10 pedal revolutions and suddenly got pitched into the street. Broken crank arm; crap.
So after hobbling out of the street, realizing I was lucky this happened on an incline when the cars were going slowly, thanking the cyclist that stopped to see if I was okay what is the first thing I do? Snap a quick picture and fire it off to Twitter of course. I'm retarded.
I'll spare you the aftermath photo. Let's just say that my left shin and knee are missing some skin and there is a big bump under my left patella. More sucking. So I walked my bike home the last mile or so. Oh well.
