Day 4 into recovery and still no riding. I did put the bike on the trainer today and thought about it. When I broke my collar bone in Joe Martin in 2009 I was on the trainer in 4 days and riding outside after 9 days according my training log. This one is going to take a bit longer. I remember being comfortable on the bike during that time. I can't sit on the bike and reach the handlebars yet. It could take a bit longer this time. Also this sweet bruise is starting to appear.

I have another good size bruise on my groin area. Not quite sure how I didn't feel that or bang you know what as how close it was.

So I got my father registered for Iceman after hitting refresh on the USA Cycling website for 2.5hrs. It's happened the last few years with the race crashing a registration site. The race will fill up in a day. That's over 3,000 riders that want nothing more then to race a 27mile mountain bike race, on two track, in northern Michigan, in November, which makes it the biggest bike race in Michigan. I really believe it's not the race, but the atmosphere that everyone keeps coming back for.

Here is a beautiful sunset on another awesome day on our way to gymnastics after having Chipotle. A good way to end a rather uneventful day.
