Ok. First off Darrin woke me up at 6am because the pain was too great in his stomach and he needed to go to the E.R. He told me he was having a heart attack. He wasn’t thank goodness. The doctor gave him some meds for his stomach pain and we were on our way. Ok that was Chips pain.
Now for my pain. When we came home from the hospital Darrin got ready for church and then left. I on the other hand geared up for what I thought was going to be a long bike ride but turned into a 20 minute bike ride, if that. I put my sunglasses onto my glasses then strapped on the helmet then put the ear buds in so I could listen to Gavin Degraw’s latest self titled CD in my Dell DJ so the ride would be at least tolerable.
I go down H street from 3rd and I’m nearing the Catholic church which is like 10th street or something, I remember seeing 11th street as I was passing the church but just before I started to get near it I could feel my upper front legs just tightening up from the stress I was putting on them from the ride. I don’t know, maybe I wasn’t in the right gear or something but my legs were in pain.
I had to push myself to get to California Ave though so I could say I tried. As soon as I got to California Avenue I sighed a big sigh of relief. Then I had to turn right and Eye street wasn’t too far then I could turn right and go back to 3rd st. Now keep in mind, I didn’t go very far.
I finally got home, took of that hot helmet and I swear to science that my legs were in so much pain I was walking like an old man in a retirement home using a walker. Flower was so happy to see me that she was jumping up on my back legs trying to show her love and trying to get me to pick her up but I could barely walk much less bend over to pick up a toy chihuahua.
I’m glad it’s over BUT… I gotta try again tomorrow. If I can get to California avenue and not be in so much pain then I can keep going, maybe to Truxton lol. The song I was on was just track 5 so you know that I wasn’t gone long lol. Maybe tomorrow I will get to track 6.
This is a cropped image from Google Maps of today’s short route hehe. It was 1.5 miles by the way.
