I've been riding a bit more lately. Since I suffered my little fall at work, things have been a little sketchy on the bike. My ribs on my left side were tender, so any time I was breathing hard, I was wincing (don't even ask about sneezing or coughing). I only rode half of LBL; I probably could have finished, but, truthfully, I'm not sure. In the last week or so, everything has fallen together. I'm pain free, in my back & ribs. The weird thing is, I've had a problem with the right side of my back (directly under my shoulder blade), for years. During the Tour de Kota, I started stopping at a bar, early in the day, for a couple of beers, to dull the pain. Now, because I whacked the crap out of the left side of my back, everything's fine. WTF? In cycling news, it looks like Belgium's card carrying badass has landed in more hot water.
