I’m fine, just fine.
The haircut worked. A bit.
I went for a 3 and a half hour ride at Blue yesterday and my knee held up well enough that this morning’s ride at Graham doesn’t seem like folly. I didn’t ride WELL. But I got it done. A little the way I’ve been playing pool.. A bit distracted, but still managing to get the job done for the most part. I scrambled back last week, controlling the table for 25 balls, to take J’s money after it was looking a lot like he might actually beat me.
I’ve got an appointment on thursday (I think.. not yet confirmed) to get an MRI of the knee and immediately have a consult with the doc. If there is an obvious meniscal tear that can be cleaned up easily it might be worth doing. Recovery time is short. I’ve done it before.. I’ve got some idea. The MRI will confirm an ACL rupture (or maybe not), but I’m not going to be replacing that old thing!!
Simon Firth is the official repair guy in the US for Brooks. When he heard about the UTA and saw that I was putting a swift on it, he suggested that Brooks would probably be interested in joining the list of donors. I told him that I already had a Ti Swift, but he got me one anyway… and added a little treat! Brooks. Simon. Thank you. Too many beautiful!
