I've had several injuries over the years; sprained ankles, IT band issues, hamstring tear, sciatic nerve issues, torn ligaments in the shoulder. Most of these come from over-use, poor form, falls, or bike crashes. We freely share these experiences with friends and family, posting on Facebook and Twitter as we do many things.
A pillow over my head, trying to keep out any light and sound, I lay there ruminating over my state of affairs. My finances, my work, my relationships, the seemingly constant elusive pursuit for happiness and purpose. Again, I had slept a total of two broken hours through the night.
