A Bit of a Tumble

As I took my last training ride before the race this weekend, i had a bit of a tumble. About 3 miles or so into the ride, I flew across a suspended cable bridge and got my arm tangled up into one of the cables. Needless to to say, I came to a very abrupt stop. It was kind of like getting “clotheslined” but done so with your arm.

I’ve ridden across this bridge dozens and dozens of times with no incident and was even a highlight of riding this particular trail. However, this time around, that wasn’t the case.

I was a bit concerned about not being able to race and even cut the ride short with the thought of getting it seen by a dr. But after icing it last night and a little TLC from my wife, I think it looks much worse than it feels.
