Injuries one week on

One week on since my cycling crash and I’m healing up. A whole week of the bike. I have not experienced a week off the bike since I got it back in December. Not having to get up at 5:40am on Saturday morning was different. Hence I took the opportunity to stay in bed until 10am

The only thing I did do today is a couple of small loads of washing and drop the bike off to be inspected.

Rest of the day has been sitting on the couch healing (that is what I will call it, others may call it being lazy)

My hip finally is starting to turn white again. Have only bumped it twice today. Is still very tender. Gravel rash is healing up and from what the nurse told me elbow is healing up well.

I think I have chosen this bike as the replacement. I am just waiting to be told by someone it’s the right bike for me and go ahead and get it. Oh and that it’s got the right equipment.

Injury update

Its been a couple days since my bike crash now. Went back and visited the doctor this morning and they took of the bandages and checked the elbow. They decided to keep the stitches in because they are holding at the moment however they want to redress it every couple of days. This is looking to be expensive.

However I do want it to mend ASAP so I can get riding again. So new bike it is and I am sorting out my finances so I can make this happen. So when I am back on the bike hopefully it will be my new bike.

Hip is still sore if I bump it or have a belt on and a really nice black bruise has formed under the large patch I have over it. Because of the little damage to the bike itself I can only assume it is my hip and elbow that took the brunt of the impact and then I used the rest on my body to bring things to a stop.

Maybe cyclists should wear air bags 🙂
