I call Mark in a complete panic, making him extremley nervous that he was an hour away and not able to get me to the ER and not knowing the extent of the damage. I went to our neighbors house (thank GOD for good neighbors who are home) and I must have been a complete sight...shorts, a sports bra and a head covered in blood...uh can you please help me? And to the poor PG&E guy driving by, sorry to have scared you...picture me walking next door on the phone holding a bloddy t-shirt. Again a sight. They immediately got me some ice, looked at the wound and said yes indeedy we are going to the ER. Not a band-aid type situation. Rat Farts! I put on a t-shirt and off we went.

Dr's Orders no swimming until the stitches are out...gonna get those bad boys out tonight thank you very much and to take it easy. I took Friday and Saturday completely off and enjoyed going to watch Mark race at Snelling and being a super supporter in the feed zone.

My swim is gonna get better dammit!!
Thanks for all of the support and messages! Next up a big week of training a bike fit with Cheif Bike Mechanic and Coach Mark! Pics of that to come!
