It's not been a great 2012 so far. It all started well - feeling quite fit and getting into road riding.
Then a couple of days into the year I got a virus which put me out of action for the best part of two weeks. Had to cancel trip to Peaks.
Just starting to feel better again so went out for a pootle on the MTB with a mate on Monday afternoon, went over the bars when hidden hole swallowed wheel and sprained thumb pretty bad. Bloody painful.
Nurse at minor injury unit said it'll be better in a week. Five days later it's still almost as painful as when I did it and there's no way I can go ahead with rescheduled MTB ride in Peak District on Monday. Internet says it'll actually be THREE WEEKS to heal.
At least I can still ride on the road if I'm careful, but not a happy bunny.
