Angels.. The Revenge

It had all been going so well. Last week I managed to bag most of my local climbs and the weather was great. One of my best weeks of cycling after a long lay off due to surgery.
On Sunday the clocks went forward and my eldest had birthday party. So I skipped the morning session and was happy to do the family thing.
When all was calm and the Dancing On Ice theme tune filled the lounge, I saw my opportunity and went for it. "Just popping on the turbo"... no answer.. great I'm in.
Angels was my choice as the lappy booted into life.
Well I must have been over doing it somewhat as the kids kept complaining they couldn't sleep for the 'aeroplane noise'. I repelled every attack with gusto.
After another sucessful mountain stage win I settled down with a beer and a slight twinge in my groin area. Bedtime came and went.
Next morning I awoke to the sensation of boiling water being poured down the front of my pj's. I quite simply could not move without yelling out in some strange tongue. AGONY was here for a visit. The kids came through looking rather disturbed even a little frightened. It was time to get a grip... of the headborad and try get out of bed to get the kids off to school. Just how I managed I still don't know.
My life had changed.. suddendly everyday tasks were a venture into 'the pain box' ..damn you Sufferfest. The stairs were now a mountain.. all fours are a must.
Next day the Mrs took pity on me and did the school run, its just a shame the same could not be said about my work colleagues who have suggested that in fact I was not the rider, but must have been ridden in some rough fashion. The kind lady on NHS24 has given great advice and I'm slowly getting better, but her 3 day recovery estimate was a little optimistic. Every night is a strruggle until I find that one pain free position...then its morning again and Mr Agony comes calling.Turtle/ back .....you get the idea..
So if you miss a session.. just let it go :(

    I would much rather an hour on the turbo to a sufferfest than listen to Robbie Williams, unless I was listening to him screaming due to being put through a wood pulper while fully conscious. There would be nothing left for dmclite to cut and pour vinegar on though. Sorry mate. :P
