It has been awhile since I last posted anything so here is a little update.
A little over 4 months ago I had knee surgery to fix up my right knee in hopes that I could resume my normal riding/racing lifestyle. After all the physical therapy the knee is better (minus the numbness which may never go away) - no more pain at least when I do normal activities. Strength is o.k. but no where near the level I was a couple of years ago. My biggest problem now is my right hip. I am actually afraid to go see the doctor about it because I am really not that pleased with how my by body responded to knee surgery. I would hate to go through any type of procedure on my hip so I have been taking it really easy and hoping that with time I can at least resume a somewhat active lifestyle. The one other problem is my ability to deal with heat. Every time I push myself when it is hot I get really sick.
It was time to head to the lake once the normal summer temps arrived. A great time was had out on Beaver Lake. Carolynn's new SUP while a little unstable compared to some models is very fast.
Pivot Rock was in made this past summer. Hopefully these tourist attractions get a little better. I was not impressed with this natural formation.
Another summer in the books and I am still trying to adjust to this new
way of life. A life which has me stuck in the small chain ring. Part of me feels like quitting everything and just living a sedentary life. The other part does not want to give up just yet.
