More. I guess I got it, because you know, when bad crud comes downs in goes down in buckets.
Today I'd planned on riding an hour on the trainer and fiddling w/the TT bike fit. To do that I swapped pedals from the old bike to the new. Got basically dialed in and heard, "click" from the left pedal.
Ok... and, cleat won't engage pedal. I take it off the bike and tension seems gone from the entry/release mechanism. Pretty sure it can't be fixed..
Perhaps I was due for a "rest week" and this was how it shook out?
Normally I have something mildly philosophical to say, but it is a simple case of much being out of one's control. Kinda of shocking that health and desire to be healthy is in many ways are linked to "fate" and chance.
When I've dealt with this in the past it's always a strong reminder to keep with it, that's every training day is an important and not insignificant because you just don't know when something out of one's control is going to intervene.
The upside? I guess the stroke is not gone, and I'm not feeling out of shape..
I just don't want this last race of the season to slip away, I need one more shot at that racing thrill.
