The Roller Coaster

It’s hard to believe that it was Father’s Day when I last posted to this blog, so much has occurred since that time a mere 2 1/2 weeks ago.  I’m reminded of a roller coaster as I think back since that last post.

To begin with, I’ve only been able to log somewhat over 125 miles on the bike in training — when ideally it should have been double that at least.    A pulled muscle in my back (after picking up the newspaper from the ground!) had me off the bike for a little over a week, after which I was able to get in that 125 miles over 3 good rides.  On each ride I felt stronger, and once again felt confident that my training was getting me to where I need to be in order to complete the ride.

Backs (or at least my back) seem to be fickle regarding injuries — and 3 days ago once again (for no apparent reason) it let me know I needed to rest it again.  So, here I am, perfect training weather outside, and some 4 weeks away from the kickoff dinner — nursing my ailing back.

Good news, bad news — isn’t that the story of life?  Right now I’m just trying to be patient and take care of myself.  Cancer treatments aren’t easy — and neither is the PMC.
