Back on the bike

It's been months. Months of stress, worry, training, frustration, and sometimes pain. I am well on my way to a full recovery with my hamstring strain. I feel stronger and much more aware of how much stress my body can, and can not, handle. A big thanks goes out to my family and girlfriend for being so supportive and encouraging. I am looking forward to an exciting first summer of racing, and hopefully several more to come.

On the road again

No I'm not traveling abroad again. In fact I've been on Rest and Recuperation for almost a month now due to a light strain in my hamstring. A year of bike riding without any real stretching routing has successfully tightened up my leg muscles to the point of starting to tear. I went to see a sports physician and was prescribed 8 weeks physical therapy to get the tension and strain worked out.

Trail-Blazing the Silver Comet

For anyone who doesn't know, there is a trail outside of Atlanta called the Silver Comet. It's a six foot wide paved trail that runs from Smyrna to the Georgia-Alabama state line (60miles). It is built ontop of an abandoned rail road line, which means it is relatively flat as far as walking/biking paths go.
