Success in the Small Things

Woohoo! I successfully unwrapped and rewrapped my new ace bandadge one-armed. All by myself. Sure, it’s not as pretty as when the docs do it, but I didn’t spend the better part of my youth in med school. Life’s about tradeoffs.

In other news, I uploaded the Garmin data for you. Looks like it recorded the truck being driven away after the fall or something until the battery died, so the data after mile 48.1 is pretty much crap. (Shocking, but I can’t actually hit 64mph on the bike.)

I haven’t played with it a ton, but I appear to have gone down at mile 48.1ish, and slowed down to 20mph before hitting the pavement. The 3.3mph blip I can only assume is where I bounced/skid. You can actually see it better in the desktop software, but it doesn’t seem exportable in any useful format. Oh! And for the record, I didn’t flatline…the EMTs took off my cardio band (hooray for more embarassing bits of me being exposed to lots of people!). Speaking of, I wonder where that band got off to…

Anyway, enjoy!

What do we have here?

An often sarcastic, occasionally humorous journal of my training adventures in preparation for the Livestrong century ride. I took up cycling back in '07 in hopes of meeting new people, and, with the help of Team in Training, making my small positive difference in the world -- and haven't stopped spinning since. Follow along as my Trek road bike and I try and hash out our differences, hopefully with me upright and in the saddle.
