One Week

It has been one week since my injury. Physically I’m feeling much better. In fact I really have very little pain – I do have my “electric” leg (get lots of nerve activity in my leg so it is full of pins and needles). It might sound strange but I actually have to remind myself that I’m injured – I honestly feel like I could get on my bike today.

I think this is what is making this really hard. I feel great really and I know that I’m pretty darn strong right now as well.

I’m trying to be positive about this and last week I had some glimpses of feeling good mentally – but this is a bumpy road. I know that you’re not visiting this website to read “woe is me” stories – so I apologize for this.

On the really bright side – Marc is arriving next Tuesday! This will be great – I’m looking forward to going to his races and just generally having him around. It will be very nice to spend Christmas together here in Belgium. I’ve also changed my return flight so instead of flying home on Feb. 6, I’ll be flying home with Marc on Dec. 29. Strange to realize that it will be first time spending January in Ottawa in five years!

Well, whatever you’re doing – I hope you’re making the most of it. If you’re out riding – do some efforts for me – I’ll be cheering you on!

(Thanks for putting up with my whining…)

  1. llast weeks I read your posts and when you crashed and heared what was your injury, it frightened me. I crashed in 2008 and broke 7 bones at once. I felt the same as you. You want to ride your bike!
    Wish you a good recovery. Take care.

    • Hi Reza
      Thanks very much for your message. It helps me a lot to know that you have also come back to top strength after a big injury. I’m feeling better physically everyday – it is the mental aspect that is the hardest. Best of luck with the rest of your season! I’m going home on Dec. 29.
      take care,

  2. Oh Vicki, I was thinking of you on my ride today… Went for an easy roll on the Parkway in the snow and ice on my cx bike (good for the bikehanding!) You’ll heal up, but I’m so sorry your season was cut short.
    Cheers,

    • HI Kim
      Funny – I was wondering how the rest of your season went! Well, the upside is I’ll be home at the end of December and Lois has already signed up (with Sabina) to give me some skiing lessons! Hopefully those two don’t wear me out! Thanks for the kind words.
      cheers,
