    Latest injury...

    Broken finger. Go, me!

    This hurting myself thing is getting seriously old. I don't know what my problem is, but I hope I find a way to resolve it pretty soon. The past year and a half has been just one injury or illness after another. My insurance company must love me...

    yow--how'd you do that?

    I've been lucky---knock on wood---in the injury department. Although last night I was racing my son on his mountain bike (me on my road bike--I still lost!), and I almost wiped out on some bumps. I got scared and had to slow down, therefore "letting him win".

    Hope it heals quick!

    dex, I'm relatively new here so I don't know you but I can totally relate. I've been either sick or injured most every month of the year so far. Back while there was three feet of snow on the ground and I started getting sick I became obsessed with biking as a way to cope. Now that it's beautiful outside I sprained my ankle and can't ride. Apparently though, it's "the time of year" for these things to happen. At least according to my doctor. So it's not just us.

    Seriously! I tell myself exactly that all the time.

    Thanks for the commiserations and listening to my latest injury whine, ladies. Truly appreciated.

    I think I have to learn how to stop thinking all the time, especially when I'm doing things like walking down a flight of stairs, or scrambling over boulders in not-so-dry creek beds, or especially when riding my bike. Ok, so really I should just start paying more attention to what I'm doing and less attention to whatever silly thing has captured the attention of my brain.

    Lifting weights helped me learn how to shut my brain off, so I think I'm going to do that again for a little while--nothing ridiculously heavy, and only things I can do around my current injuries.

    Gah! I'm a dork.
