2nd Casualty Of The Year

..a bike crash.

I promise I am not normally injury prone and two accidents in four months are not bad odds. I was riding my bike Saturday morning and the roads were slick from rain. I lost my focus for two seconds and my bike slipped off the side of the road and next thing I knew, I was on the ground and the bike was about a half a foot in front of me. I didn’t look..I just made sure I could stand up and got back on my bike. I was only about halfway through my ride so I needed to keep going. I felt ok so I kept going. Awhile later, I looked down to see blood running down my leg, but I had to keep going. I had a swim meet to get to. I finally made it, cleaned it up a little, put a band-aid on it, and finished the morning.
Fast forward a few hours, my leg is throbbing and I can’t lay on it so sleeping has been difficult. I am a big baby about this stuff too. But thankfully it could have been worse and I am recovering quickly.
Plus, I am sure it won’t be the last crash..it sorta goes with the biking territory. 🙂
