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!
