So after puerto rico I headed home for a week and put in some days of suffering to breath after being @ sea level for close to 6 weeks. I headed to sea otter feeling good and hoping for some good rides in the STXC and the XC. It didn’t really end up panning out for me as my leg ended up going numb in the XC. After suffering around and finishing I started to think what could have caused such a thing to happen. I was planning on attending the first two rounds of the world cup but I decided I didn’t want to head over with a bum leg.
At first I was hoping it would be better soon so I booked a ticket to fly back to d-town the following monday so I could do a road race and crit with the Team Clif Bar road team. I took 3 days off to nurse the leg back to life. I got to spend some time in San Fran which is an awesome city if you ever get the chance to visit. I’ve been taking the BART which is a perfect way to get around in the bay area. I’ve been staying with Dylan from clif bar and his family. His wife’s nephew was in San Fran with a buddy and took the BART to berkeley one night for dinner. He was freaking out about it. I was thinking man good thing he wasn’t in NYC taking the subway I don’t think he would have made it out alive. Dylan just got a new puppy Otis who I’ve been spending a lot of time with. The guy is a Lab Doberman mix who is about 5 months old and is a spazz to say the least so we get along well.
Sector 16 has been off the chain as always. Dylan and Eric are looking @ launching a master and commander line of all sorts of dumb ideas they are coming up with. I’m getting a sweet helmet cam to take home with me though so hopefully I’ll be able to get some ripping action on the D-town single track soon. Also we saw maybe the craziest crew of workers @ the round table pizza in pacific grove. I will never venture into a round table pizza for the rest of my life.
So I decided not to do the road race this weekend but I’m going to give it a go in the crit. My leg still feels off and weak but I’m confident once I get home and see Dr. Frank and Luke Angel they will fix me right up. If my leg comes around I want to do the joe martin stage race in R-Kansas in two weeks. The first two rounds of the canada cups are also looking like they will fit in. Then of course the next ProXCT in Texas.
