the last couple of days have been interesting for me. after diegem, my achilles really started bugging me. bad enough i couldn't even ride yesterday. remember what i said about listening to the mechanic? i come back early and gregory says "ok, we go to the doctor". a phone call and 30 minutes later i was in the exam room for one of saxo bank's doctors. crazy. so there's not much to do about the leg except try to dull the pain. christmas cross week is no time for rest! he gave me some anti inflamatories and some high strength tylenol. good news is it didnt hurt during the race, but i still raced like an amateur. i think maybe it had something to do with the panadol retard! no pain but no brain. still no good legs. frustrating to feel like i haven't had a race i can be proud of since i've been over here. well, 3 more chances before i head home.
