Update

I haven't been writing much because there hasn't been a whole lot going in. What can I say.....its off season?! That is how its supposed to be I guess.

Yesterday I went it for some PT and was there a joyful 2 hours while they iced, rubbed, poked, stretched, heated, prodded my ribs the whole time. I was happy to get out of there when I did but yet I really need the treatment still as my ribs are still super aggravated.

Today it rained like crazy but that didn't matter because I didn't have to ride in it or at all if I didn't want to! That is a nice feeling every once in a while or shall I say that is a nice feeling one month out of 12.

Hey and on that note I figured out how much time off the bike I get a year (as if you guys cared but I am going to go into it anyway). I decided to do this because everyone has been like "oh THAT must BE SO NIIIICE to have one month totally off" and I agree with them that it is quite nice but unfortunately I don't think they quite understand the whole picture........

While most people get every weekend off which accounts for 104 days a year in addition to all the special holidays, most cyclists get one month plus maybe 3 more days each of the other 11 months which gives cyclists 64 days off a year. So really, whoop dee dang doo on that one month off. I mean its great and all but that one month is well deserved. And I do agree that it IS nice that it falls it a large chunk like that but still....not much down time really overall. You really have to love this sport to be successful and those numbers above are just the tip of the iceberg on that score.
