My back is getting better, slowly. I put a suspension elastomer seat post on my Cycle Cross borrowed from my bike shop to ease the jarring on the spine for my ride tomorrow. I didn't want to lug the full suspension beast out, still with it's studded snow tires on from last winter. Too heavy. So I am ready, to see if these old bones can pump out a dirt century tomorrow. I tried it out riding out in the neighborhood tonight, it didn't bother the back, and my legs are more then ready, riding on curbs and through some yards, I could feel the fun.
The one thing that surprised me most for not riding for 5 days is how fast I can put on weight. It's funny the less physically I do the more I eat. You would think that not doing much, you wouldn't feel like eating much. Perhaps it's the edginess of not getting my riding "fix" that makes a me shove to much food in my gullet. I am kinna ashamed at this picture, but I want to be brutally honest. Here I am. I'll wear it off this week hopefully.
Over and out, and go out and play.
