286 days in a row

Well my streak of not missing a day of riding outside ended at 286 days on monday with my first trainer ride of the year. Pretty much the time between broken collarbones.

I'm spinning on the new Cycle-Ops fluid trainer I won thur American Cycle and Fitnesses Powerplay contest this past winter. Probably just 21 days on the trainer then I should be able to ride careful in the real world again and work on my new streak.

Comminuted fracture

Comminuted fracture in which the bone is splintered or crushed.

Yep. The rumors are true. I crashed during my time trial at Yankee and broke/rebroke my collarbone. It appears to have broken right where it busted last June. I'm gona miss out on some fun for a month or so but as typical I should be flying once I'm back to speed in a couple months after the forced rest.

The crash...
At about mile 4 I caught a pedal on a root which upset the bike and had me clip the handlebars on a little tree and I was tossed landing on the back of my shoulder. Contributing to the damage I broke my prescription glasses, lost a lens and had to finish the race with one blurry eye.
