We went out for a bike ride yesterday... and although most of it was great, as we were headed back to the Metro we took a detour which resulted in me doing a really dramatic flip over my handlebars, as I completely failed to avoid the giant potholes going down the steep little hill. (I was riding K's bike, which is full sized, not the one in the icon - but this is my "bike" icon, so too bad.) Thankfully I was, as always, wearing my helmet and gloves. Mostly I have road rash (right elbow, both knees, right ankle, left hip) but I also jammed my left arm pretty badly, and while the glove protected my hand (thank you glove) it did not save my joints. So my left wrist, elbow, and shoulder all hurt a lot, and my range of motion is seriously limited. I think we may have to head to an urgent care place today to have it looked at.

I'm supposed to do a triathlon in a week. I'm worried: if the arm doesn't get better dramatically, I won't be able to.
