It's been a tough month, I contracted Poison Oak on my birthday and after 1.5 weeks it turned into a staph infection in my skin that required three days of hospitalization. It took at least another week after the hospital to recover from all the medication I was on. I missed a Super D race I was really looking forward to along the way.
Well I made it out to Stella today for a casual (and quite slow) ride with the dogs today. I also switched back to Ergon grips on my bike and I was having lots of numbing and pain in my hands. Problem solved.
