Things Falling in Place

Over the last 24 hours a lot of things have started to fall into place.

Most of my scabs have come off.  This means that all I’ll need are a number of well placed band-aids under my sun sleeves (skin still too raw for sun exposure) – no more taped on bandages!  The riding is starting to be much easier to manage.

I also don’t seem to have any after effects of riding a lot the last few days after relatively little activity for the 2+ weeks after my crash.  My final major training ride goal of going 70+ miles with 4500 – 5100 ft of climbing (2/3 to 3/4 of that for next weekend) seems very tangible.  The main thing to be careful of will be to not be too enthusiastic and do too much more.  With the afternoon asphalt temperatures in the valley likely reaching triple digits, I’ll have to ride smart.

Although too late for it to do the ride with it next weekend, my new bike (a black/red Specialized Roubaix SL4 Comp) has finally arrived at the store.  It should be ready for pickup tomorrow evening.  When stopping by the local bike shops to check out the Labor Day sales, the staff at Cynergy Cycles gave me the good news.
