I don’t know what I was thinking. It should have been obvious to me that someone doesn’t heal from a broken neck in five weeks. Still, I swear the neurosurgeon told me I would be out of the neck brace and able to start limited activity on June 29, 2010. Well, I was wrong.
The neck brace remains until at least July 27. He also would not clear me for higher risks activities until later. Basically, he laid out that I will not be cleared to race until November. What that means is that my racing season is over.
The beautiful redhead and I have talked about it and we do not see why I shouldn’t be able to continue with my plans to start and finish the 2010 Ride for Mike. However, there will be no more racing for me this year… That stinks.
I’m going to have to step back here for a bit and let this sink in. I don’t know what all of this is going to mean to the blog. I have no desire to be writing stuff about me complaining all the time or asking you to give to the 2010 Ride for Mike. I’m certain you will see less (just as you have probably noticed over the last couple of weeks).
So, the next thing on my calendar is the 2010 Ride for Mike. I trust that once I start training again in earnest and planning the logistics in earnest, you’ll find more here at LowCadence.com. Follow Low Cadence on Twitter and on Facebook and you’ll know when that begins to happen.
Thank you for your support.
