Crap! Maybe it was fate; maybe my mind’s lack of motivation to race did it; maybe it was dumb-ass stupidity. Anyway, I was riding in bike park last week and was trying a 30′ by 5″ log skinny. I kept falling off about 1/2 way thru so I had this great idea of trying it again, but “faster”. This time I fell off, hit a smaller log and endo’ed. When I landed I felt this searing pain in my calf. “F” did that hurt! I had to ride back for 16km and by that time, I could hardly walk. The next day, I couldn’t put any weight on my leg except for walking on my toes. I really thought that I broke my leg at one point. Within a couple days, my walk looked almost normal and less pained. Anyway, it turned out as a 2nd degree calf strain. Its been a week and my leg is still really sore so it looks like easy riding for a while.
Anyway, I missed the Duo and now I’m need to take it easy for 2-3 weeks before pumping up my riding for the Sunshine Coaster marathon. No riding is going to kill me – I just know it!!!! Well…I think that I’ll go for a ride now 🙂
