Injury Update

Filed under: Bike Racing — Andrea @ 6:03 am

A couple of days later, and I’m amazed at how I’ve healed up. Other than random bruises showing up all over my arms and legs, the only thing I’m feeling from my Saturday mid-race flight is the groin pull. It’s pretty bad. I’m guessing that if I went to a doc that she/he would just recommend ice, rest, and anti-inflammatories, so I’ll skip the trip & just keep doing that. I took a photo of the trail rash on my hip, but it’s not really in a spot that I want to post on the internet, so you’ll just have to use your imaginations…

Update: At the recommendation of a PT friend who said that the pain I was having could be a broken hip, I went for an x-ray. Nothing is broken, but I do have a torn hip adductor. I’ve got some good anti-inflammatories and instructions to “take it easy” for a while so it can heal on its own.

  1. Should’nt you worried about the possibility of internal injuries? Sorry if I sound like your father

  2. I think I’d be in bad shape by now if I’d had anything major going on internally- especially since I rode for another 3 hours after the wreck. The elevation in BP would have made me bleed out with a quickness.
