Went out for a very casual, easy ride last Wednesday…
Ended up clipping my left bar on a tree which sent me into a few other trees, head first. Stem cracked right apart leaving my handlebars just hanging there. It’s is a MIRACLE I walked out of that trail with no broken bones or nothing worse. I definitely was left with some sweet cuts, bruises and a concussion but I’m SO thankful it wasn’t worse, especially for how hard I hit my head and slammed my body. The past five days haven’t been fun at all and it’s knocked me flat on the coach but I’m coming out of it, slowly but surely. I’ve felt better the past two days, which is a good sign. Progress! You just never know what could happen. Thank you to the nice man that led me out of the trail since I was SO disoriented. He saved me! And thank you Dan for leaving work as fast as possible to meet me at the car to get me to Insta Care and for taking care of me at home. So thankful.
My head still feels rattled and I know it will for a while. I’m trying to be very careful and not jump back into my fitness life too hard. I’ve been walking the past few days and added in some pushups and pullups, just to keep my body moving. I tweaked my back so it’s been hard to just lay on the couch so much. Blah! Feeling better today, but had to take a rest before Sam got home.
Feeling pretty awful in that picture
Two huge contusions and scrapes on my forehead. Another few on my actual head and a big scrape behind my ear where my helmet cracked. Got some pretty wicked bruises on my legs as well. 😉
Got out of the house for a bit Thursday to wish Siri a happy 9th Birthday! I was so spent after this day, I felt horrible on Friday. I laid low and kept things VERY mellow with lots of rest Friday-today. Still going to do the same all week.
He requested a “Gentlemans Haircut” Thank you Courtney!
They take good care of me.
The boys Dad, Jed cut down a bunch of trees for us where we’re building a shed here soon. The boys LOOOOOOVED that!
More resting while Dan flew to Seattle to meet Grandma Jane and friends for a Niners game! I was nervous about him leaving me, but thankfully lots of friends and Ali helped take Sam all weekend so I could stay down.
Holy cow so handsome.
So glad Dan and Jane made this trip happen. Long time friend Adam lives and owns a few restaurants in Seattle. He invited Dan, Jane, Waylon and Jamie to come see a Niners game and hangout at their awesome place above the water.
Adam comes up with everything on the menu. He’s quite the amazing chef.
The Niners lost, but what an awesome time they had just being together at the house and around downtown. So happy you guys got to be together!
Some stronger cold fronts coming through starting tomorrow. Just in time for birthday week! I heart the colder fall weather. 37 years young on Saturday 😉
