New Helmet Required

I got 3 substantial cracks in the skull lid from my episode. So, now that I'm on the mend it was time for a new top rate brain bucket. No expense was spared for the noggin' with the Giro Atmos (OK, it was on sale at Performance).

However, I'm still sticking to the trainer and doing some short road rides on the weekend. So, alittle inspiration is needed at times. I've been packing the Ipod with tunes recorded from internet radio. I also found this great video of the man....

On the Mend

Making progress on the shoulder - got full range of motion but still can't put too much weight on it. Plan is to visit the physical therapist every couple of weeks to track progress and get new torture exercises from the cute doc.

Spending time on the trainer in the garage to keep the legs going. Made it out for my first road ride last weekend. Good training for the legs since I have to do the seated hill climb.

Had to sell my Death Ride ticket. Oh well, I'll plan for 2008.
