I’m nervous & scared

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…
