Just 99 miles to go

I've got too much time to think - Day 15

In my current holding pattern of doing nothing for the knee, it seems all I'm thinking about is getting back on the bike. I visit my biker buddy's blogs looking for updates on what they're doing and I've been going over in my head how quickly I can get back in the saddle. I'm lucky in that spinning is acutally good for the leg. I've about made my mind up that after my next doc appt., with his permission or not I'm getting back on the road. I was trying to figure out if I could get back on the bike in early May if I'd have a chance of still racing in the Shenandoah Mt. 100. They say you should put in alot of road miles anyway to get ready for this thing. I'm just not too sure about how quickly the muscles in the legs will improve. In my operation they did have to use part of my hamstring for the graft. I'll have to do more research.

A couple of the guys I know (Jason and Peter) went on a bike vacation to CO. Jason has still been updating his blog through his cell phone or some other technical way which I don't understand. I've been enjoying those updates. If ya wanna see ,www.mtb-blog.com. Sorry I dont know enough to do a link. Just cut and paste. Evan I can do that.

Oh yeah, about the knee.
Swellings down a little, feels better than yesterday, still have to be on crutches. Blah, blah, blah.

Ride em if ya can.
