Oh boy, I hope your ribs will heal soon!
Sounds like a fun run, lots to see.
How are the shoes?

Sounds wonderful except for the ribs. I had to use a rib belt for running when we came up to train with you- it helped, but I was warned only to use it for running, not all the time.

Myka: The sort-of nice thing about ribs is that you don't have to do anything for them, just wait and let them heal, especially if they aren't too bad.
The new Salomons are working out well :)

Bent: yes, I remember your rib belt. As for not using it all the time, the worry would be getting some sort of infection/pneumonia in the lungs from only taking shallow breaths and not breathing deeply enough into the lungs. Even with broken ribs, it is recommended to take a full breath every hour.
As soon as I fell on the edge of the tub, I pictured how your recumbent bike crashes often land you right on your ribs - ouch!

That sucks. Europe has not been kind to you this year with regards to torso injuries.

Revy: yeah, I've been in weekly physio for the shoulder AC joint and it still has some pain, 8 weeks later :(. But I'm still optimistic it will get better. I've been able to run and bike and not notice it so it isn't limiting my activities much, but it has discomfort at rest and I don't want it to be a chronic thing, so still working on it.

That and I need to work on being less of a clutz ;)
