Good grief. I was cycling to work last week when my bike suddenly stopped, and I did not - over the handlebars and onto the asphalt palms-first. As a result I have a fractured radial neck in my right arm.

Still don't know exactly how it happened, possibly a stone or a stick got caught in the front brake (see, if I was riding my brakeless fixie this never would've happened!). It sets back my summer training programme by at least a month, but shouldn't effect my travel plans.

What a nuisance though! Everything is twice as hard to do, right down to opening a beer or buttoning my fly. Don't even ask about commuting - fortunately my employers are cool with telecommuting for a few weeks.

Sigh.
