Dude, that sucks :( . We chatted with Cory as he was leaving. What part of your arm did you break? If you need the number an awesome ortho arm doctor let me know. I'm riding in the 8th week of recovering from a broken humorus.

I saw the doctor today. He had me do a CT scan this afternoon. So this is what i know right now. I am down for 3 months. If the bone is displace 5mm or less i will be ok. If it is 5mm-10mm it will be a judgement call and if it is 1cm or more out. I will have to have surgery. I will know more next Monday.

Dude, you will get better. I know 3 months sounds like a really long time right now, but after the first 6 weeks your body starts healing super fast :) At least the weather is crappy!

I let myself go too after my injury, now I'm trying to work myself back into shape - lost 4 lbs already and the pony keg abs is now just a party ball.

Get in line....I think it's normal to let yourself go a little. You get some what depressed and you can't be as active. It's totally easier to lay on the couch and eat :thumb:
 
yea, I start teaching spin this weekend, so I should shape back up a bit.
plus having a gf, takes up alot of time..but in a great way :) I forgot what it was like...LOL :thumb: :D

FIVE, a pony keg, thats all? I have a full 20 gallon keg!
I need a bike to ride again, XC....I know I cant belive I said it either..I need to ride XC :( or road....then start up on the trails again!

20 gal keg? dang! I got the Blur 4x for the same reason, I can ride *cough* XC *cough* w/ it too.

Went out w/ this doctor woman and was telling her about my injury/surgery and all the breaks this year to fellow riders...she just gave me this look and well haven't heard from her since. I think she thinks we're a crazy lot.
