There were 20 or so pics that were taken with the wrong setting. I was in a bit of pain and the reach for my camera in my rear jersey pocket is harder to reach. I must have brushed the knob and turned it accidentally. I did a little magic but as the picture above shows- they are too bad to work.
Happy Labor Day!
State of the Onion
I'm having some real issues with pain and have no idea how I can ride, how far, or
with whom. Early on as I wake and rise my back will be in pain until I have my morning "ablutions". Before dressing in funny cycling clothes I take my warm shower. I
smear theralgesic balm over my right side- neck,
shoulder. I take 500 ml of hydrocodone twice before leaving home if I am to ride long. I can't/won't take this stuff often. It works occasionally, not consistently, but always makes me feel yucky.
When I got to the start of the ride I had a pain in the left side of my face. My neck, on the left side, was off, out of alignment. This was from some chiropractic glitch. I don't even like talking about this as it's inconsistent with my constant problem on the right side of the neck through the right shoulder.
After about an hour of riding with this pain, it was changed to the consistent crap on the right side of the neck and shoulder. I didn't take the pulls that the other guys took. But I think the stronger guys expect to pull more. I pull more when I'm better or faster.
A tendon on my left leg is stretched. The cyst in my knee is a little noticeable. But my left testicle is swollen so for an hour or so on the bike, the pain is dually from the tendon and the testicle. I squirm on my seat to get comfort for the grapefruit. In doing so I sit side saddle. Sometimes I find myself extremely on my right leg/buttock to alleviate the discomfort of the grapefruit. I also have a recurring "saddle sore" because of the position that I squirm into. All through the ride there will be constant "reorganizing". The grapefruit will be downsized in November I hope.
But after an hour or so the arm and neck will come into play. I'll have a headache possibly. Anyway, it looks like I can hold up okay, sometimes, except when there is a constant, time-trial-like push extended too long. A hard sustained effort will kick me out of the rotation. But that's a lot of what cycling is. There's a lot of sustained hard pulls.
I'll do better one on one, or one on five, but when there are 10 guys pulling constantly, hard and fast- my pain will rev up and kaboom.The back (vertebra) and hip issues are over-shadowed by the arm, neck, and shoulder.
Of course these guys today were pretty cordial or I would have been off early. And- it took 2- 500 ml of hydrocodone/ibuprofen tabs to get to it and through it. Now I won't use another hydrocodone until I want to ride with another group.
