Economic Cycles

All the economics and cycling you could want.

1 Step Forward, 2 Steps Back

I don’t even know where to start. After thinking I was on a fast track to getting better, my knee is the worst it’s ever been. I woke up in so much pain this morning and it’s still feeling worse than ever. It’s gotten so bad that I called a knee specialist that I will be seeing on Wednesday morning. Where I’m sure he’ll tell me not to ride at all for a few weeks. And thus, lose much or most of my fitness. Then I get to start racing in April with no fitness. Cool. (but isn’t it PRO to “race yourself into shape?”)

This of course happened after a great day on the bike yesterday with the team. We climbed the 3 most steep mountains in Boulder – Magnolia, Sugarloaf, and SuperFlag. My knee was throbbing by Flagstaff. I iced the living hell out of it last night, but that didn’t seem to help much at all. Now I’ll patiently await a guy I paid to tell me not to ride to tell me not to ride…

Until then, I’m reduced to day dreaming and watching bike racing on the interwebs. This video I found on Velogogo is pretty cool, mostly because Gilbert is the most fun racer to watch in recent history. If he isn’t currently attacking, he is definitely planning an attack for the near future. He lives the word panache.
