I did go watch the Nature Valley Grand Prix bike race this weekend. Saw the men’s race on Friday in Uptown and went to Stillwater for the women’s on Sunday. Took some pictures. To the left is the female Armstrong, who totally blew away the competition. She is an inspiration if you know here history.
Anyway, been a while since the last post. With reason. I have been internally stressing over Grandma’s. While it may seen stupid as worry and stress are often referred to as worthless emotions, it is just this is the end of a 25 year goal.
The big concern, even with the HGH injection, the knee is painful. With two weeks of a little easy training (10-12 miles per week) and careful care, my PF is better. But the knee is improved little. I am going to spend the rest of the week casual biking and much work in the pool.
I did have an MRI on the knee and decided to wait until after grandma’s to get the results. Being a natural worry wort, I was just going to let it be and suck it up and hope I can pull the race.
I plan on leaving about 6 Friday, once again, sleeping in the car, running the race, and then heading home. I plan on going real easy planning a 12 minute mile for as much as the knee can handle and the do what I need to get it done.
For those joining me, I wish you well. It looks like rain, which I do not mind. But then again, that is 5 days away and if weathermen were car makers, image we would not even get out of our hometown, let alone get to the race.
