Good morning, TEAM LIT!
Y'all: Thanks for the healing vibes regarding my arm. It is getting much better but is still out of sorts. It is no longer painful but I am getting greater range of motion and having less discomfort as I do various activities that strain the arm in different ways, such as turning in a car as you drape your arm over the wheel while turning, or such as pulling up your tights for your morning run! I still have to aid with the good arm, and I think I might be able to wiggle out a push up, but I'm staying off it while just working range of motion in hopes to get it mostly healed. I say mostly because I had a weakness in their for 4 years, and I know this has set it back, so I fully expect to have to work on this/watch it for at least another 4 years and possibly forever. (I did damage in there, where the arm separated/dislocated, many years ago in the gym lifting a heavier weight than I should have).
Alaska Mike: Looks as if you're getting pace back!
SwimmerBee: Re: saddle. Most people I know who went the Adamo route eventually went back to a more traditional saddle, which isn't to say you will too, because I do remember a few people (just not a majority) absolutely loving the Adamo. I tried it but found that my riding style, in how I "ride the rivet" in a way to generate even more power, made it more uncomfortable in the long haul. I was good on shorter rides, but the longer ones were more painful.
Long Weekend Recap...
Saturday: 8 mile solo road run in 3F that felt more like 28 miles. Had to bail on a trail run with friends because my arm was in too bad a shape. I knew if I fell and had to catch myself, I'd end up in the hospital, so I skipped.
Sunday: 9 mile road run with two others.
Monday: 4 mile black ice run, perhaps the worst I've ever run in. Had to run up on people's lawns and walk when I hit the driveways, as the black ice was very bad even on major roads.
Tuesday: 7 mile social run with 4 others early this morning. No black ice, thankfully.
