Mileage Recap ~ 1 – 14 June: Four Hump Chump

First…Happy Father’s Day to all the Dads.  Hope today was special.

Since I’ve been experiencing some pain in my left knee and right hip I decided to make an appointment with the doctor.  The great news is no degradation in the knee but mild bursitis in the hip.  The bad news is I might need some cortisone shots in the knee and hip…again.  Uh…not if I can help it.  I’ve had about 5 shots in the knee and I can only imagine what the hip will feel like.  So for now ice, ice baby.

I had planned to run a 5k on the 6th but that got cancelled. That’s okay because I’ve been quite content with the bike for the moment.

The second week of June was quite a different story ~ feeling better I was able to get some good mileage in during the week with a long ride on Saturday.

Long ride conditions:

Weather:   Was a cool 61 with light wind and 88% humidity.  Not bad but a little chilly for June.

Road Kill:  Moderate/High.  There’s not a lot of shoulder on the route and if there’s a dead animal it can be quite challenging.  Opossums, birds, snakes, frogs, turtles and a beaver!  Meh, I can’t listen to music so….

Road Douchebaggery: Mild.  Thank you to the big white truck that passed so close and needs one heck of a tune-up.  You’re special…really I mean that.

Beer Can Sightings: Low.  Mile 16.52 Keystone…yes it was lite.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t one of my best rides and I was slightly annoyed.  I kept looking at my Garmin for some reason and I just wanted to be done.  The great news is I’m in the 4 digits!

1 – 14 June mileage = 32.96 with 9,973.31 gratefully remaining.  Happy miles to you:)

  1. I hear you on the bursitis!! It’s the worst. KT tape is good for temporary relief – I would check out active release therapy for long term relief! Congrats on your mileage 🙂

  2. The “Like” is for the post, not the hip/knee pain. If there was a “Boo. Hiss.” button for the bursitis, I would have clicked it. Hope you feel better soon.
