I had 4 workouts before Vineman. Today was my final bike workout. I had 4x30 second max efforts. I was riding, started my effort and saw 29.9mph and then I was over my bike, in the air.
My feet worked, my hands worked and my collarbones were in tact. I was laying on the ground, facing the sky. I felt the blood coming down my leg.
Lots of people stood over me. I got asked if I wanted an ambulance – I said no because I know I have a big deductible.
I wondered if I could still swim, bike and run on Sunday.
Greta is NOT going to be happy.
I laid in the road for what felt like 5 mins or so. I wondered what my HR was, it felt high.
The blood was oozing down my leg now.
I got a hand up and got my bike. Not a single scratch.
I looked at my leg, the blood looked exactly like Strawberry Banana GU. There was a tire mark down my leg.
I rode home.
Everything is bleeding. Everything hurts. My right arm hurts to move, as does the other one. My knuckles are even bleeding. My forearms are swollen as is my knee and shin and hand.
My wedding ring is scratched.
I just got blood on the couch trying to write this.
I’ll be at Vineman on Sunday, just a few oz. lighter.
