Things I don't get
My left shin (shin splints) feels 100% better. Yay. That I DO get.
What I do NOT get. The right shin, that apparently has a SF in it, still doesn't hurt (knock on wood). No pain when touching it. No bump on the shin. Even my Sports' MD and Sports' PT don't get it. At least, when you actually feel pain, you know when it's getting better. I don't. Not at all. And it's frustrating and makes me scared to even try running when I'm allowed to again. What if the shin snaps out of the effing blue when coming down a mountain?
Lessons learned (on this weekend's cycling sessions):
1. Cycling 32 miles a day - coming from a 3 mile base - will make your lady parts hurt. Enough said.
2. Cycling is fun. Seriously. :)
3. It doesn't really matter whether you're running in a skirt or cycling in a pink cycling jersey, the honking continues. That is, when on a bike, the honking actually scares the shit out of me! At one point I actually figured I must have been on the wrong side of the road or something.
4. Uphills will make your quads hate you.
5. A GPS on your bike is a godsend. No kidding. Especially with my navigation skills.
6. Wearing a helmet for 2 hours straight will give you helmet hair. Please check mirror before rushing out the door to meet a friend for drinks...
7. Moeben arm sleeves work as great on a bike as they do on a run.
8. Cycling is actually fun. Oh, I already said that? ;)
