My miles are tanking... :-(

Hmmm... I try not to whine on the "BLOG"... I like to be positive... I like to think that's my style... But...

I got a confession to make... Low back pain arrived in the first week of January and it wont leave me alone... I'm thinking the cause may be as simple as the big snowstorm of new years day which had me doing lots of snow shoveling... So far it's just a nagging ache but it's been pretty much 24/7 and it makes me nervous... Back in 2000 and 2001 I was forced to quit riding due to low back pain... Anyway, I have decided to take some time off the bike... My winter rides will continue without a hitch as the guys are all willing to fill in for me to keep the fun rolling along...I have an appt with the doctor next week... Maybe some PT here for me soon... Bah!

My January miles were only 600, compare that to last year's January of 1,406. Yikes! I'm already 806 miles behind last year.

You can see the big dip in miles back 2000 and 2001 in this graph. The 2004 dip was a my broken ankle...

The other day I decided that this was gona be my new standard quote. I wrote it down and quickly realized it kinda fit in with my fascination with palindromes. I know it's not a palindrome, but somehow it's still graphically pleasing to me... I mean if you include the exclamation point as a character and count the number of characters in each word you get 1424241... Which just coincidently my all time bike mile will cross the 142424.1 mile mark very soon...
