In one day, I go in for surgery. It’s supposed to help me; that’s what the doctor says (and a lot of friends). I’m sure it will; but I can’t keep myself from feeling anxious. I just want to be past it.
Yesterday’s ride was going just fine… until the pain started. It’s really hard to pedal home on a bumpy trail when you’re entire torso hurts.
Unlike other athletic injuries/surgeries I’ve had before, I don’t know what the recovery plan is. Combing the internet – there’s not a lot to be said about returning to exercise, just ‘normal activities’. The doctor laughed at me when I mentioned that I had a race coming up.
So, I really don’t have a grip on how this will effect my training. What I do know is that I have a race planned in 8 weeks. Enough time to train in normal conditions… and well, if I have to pull something out of thin air – I guess I will.
I’ll just take it day by day…
