The good news: I made it down to team training camp in San Diego last Sunday evening. Got a few awesome rides in with Joanie, Rob and Keirnan Orange and got settled in nicely at our team house on the coast.
The bad news:
Day 1 -
Apparently hitting the pavement at 50km/h has some side effects...
Day 2 -
Damn I really hope this doesn't scar - I'm WAY too vain!
Day 4 -
Heading out for a ride - I scared the dude at the coffee shop I think...
My solution to not get sun on my scar... My teammates are a little embarassed by it...
Day 6 -
Healing up nicely...on a relative scale.
Unfortunately my shoulder isn't cooperating quite as much. The roadrash is healing quite nicely - but I also separated my shoulder so that's taking its time.
Through all this there is a little more good news though:
Crashing on a US military base has its advantages as I was well taken care of, and Specialized makes a damn good product:
Jokes aside - I'm doing really well and I'm just frustrated that the start of my season has been delayed by another week or two. No worries though - it just means that I'm going to be that much more eager to rip it up when it's time to strut my stuff!!!
