This Journey has really been a "one step at a time kind" of trip...trying daily to build a new structure to my life...brick by healthy brick.
On some days...and in a certain light...I can see that structure rising up...I can see the progress...and on others days...well...I feel a "few bricks short of a load"!
I was back in the gym tonight...just to do some upper body work in hopes of building strength there..while I try to heal or quite possibly wallow in denial regarding how injured my left knee really is...not looking good tho!
In my denial...I got on the bike only to discover that I could not even make a full rotation...bummed!
However...brick by brick...day by day...I plan to do my best to continue to build a healthier body!
Injuries and setbacks are part of life...but so are victories...and healing!
While I may actually BE a few bricks short of a load....I am still planning on suiting up (in full on Lycra) and pedaling my way to Austin...raising some money for a wonderful cause and continuing construction on this life of mine!
Forging On...albiet with a limp....but Forging On nonetheless!
