Tuesday Shoulder Update: On the Road Again. Sigh.

Just returned from the shoulder doctor. No muscle tear, but some serious tendinitis and fluid build-up that is probably a direct result of the fact that I continued to mountain bike after the injury.

The prescription: physical therapy and NO MOUNTAIN BIKING until the inflammation is gone and I'm pain free. Either that or I can probably kiss cross season good-bye. Fuck Fucking Fuckerton.

So I'm stuck on my road bike for at least the next few weeks. GRRRRRRRRRRR.

I'm taking you up on that late season MTB offer. And I will be fixed for cross if I have to cut my arm off and ride with a fake one.

well i am glad it's not torn. torn = surgery = DEFINITELY no cross season. but sorry you're off the 'fun' bike for the next little while. =(

BEST NEWS!!!

I know it's going to be SO ANNOYING for now, but I'm relieved there is no tear.

It will mend perfectly as soon as the swelling recedes.
