Did the North Shore ride this morning – 99% sure I have a few bruised ribs from Saturday’s crash. Instead of feeling better, I’m in more and more pain each day. It felt good to ride, I just can’t take deep breaths, twist or stand… In fact, parallel parking feels like someone’s running an ice pick through my ribs – much worse than riding in a straight line. I fractured a couple of ribs at Crystal Ridge last year, and this feels very similar, although not quite as bad.
First massage in years on tap for tomorrow night, long overdue. I just hope I start feeling better soon.
