placed on the 10-day DL

bad crash on the trails immediately following "i don't think this is a good idea" led to falling headfirst for what seemed like three stories into a ravine full of downed trees and landing squarely on my shoulder has me out of commission. phone call from the doctor just confirmed x-rays negative/normal so nothing torn or damaged but still lacking most of my range of motion with significant pain when not using the arm and worse when i try to use it. doctor's guess is 10ish days off the bike with lots of ice and range of motion exercises. legitimately could be worse and was planning on taking a couple of weeks off the bike after the royal 162 this saturday. timeframe has obviously been moved up but disappointed there's no way i can do the race.

a hard ice crash off the bike this winter trashed my shoulder. Did a lot of range of motion exercises and after 2 months, I got a shot of cortisone, and then healing started. Hopes your heals faster, but a shot of juice may be considerable if things don't get better.
