My friends and I have a saying when someone gets their feelings hurt, we'll say "they got all butt hurt". Well I discovered the literal meaning of this Sunday (get your minds out of the gutter you pervs...lol). I hit the mountain bike trail for the first time since earlier this summer. My bike skills improved a lot over the summer with all the road riding I did. I feel a lot more confident on my bike and attempted almost all of the trail. What does all of this mean??? Well it means that I crashed... a lot. I did get up everytime and hop right back on the bike. My legs are once again all black and blue and one of the crashes I hit my butt bone, hard. Monday I actually called in sick to work and spent the day with an ice pack on my butt. So I had to endure some razzing today, one coworker offered to loan me his daughter's old training wheels that she no longer needs and another coworker offered to "kiss it and make it all better". It was great to back on the trail, bumps and bruises and all.

Pfft. Now try cracking your tailbone during childbirth, the doctors and nurses not noticing and practically yelling at you that you're not up and about the day after and you should be and how lazy you must be and brushing it off as "normal" when you try to tell them how much it hurts to move, and then going home and taking care of a baby and finally figuring out on your own, almost a year later, what's wrong and that there are exercises and other things you can do to help relieve the pain.
I was jumping on the trampoline with my 2 year old daughter last week when we were visiting my brother-in-law. His trampoline has more give than ours apparently, because I did one of those jump up and land on your tail moves... but his trampoline went all the way to the ground. Been so sore each day since... i'm sitting on a pillow as I type this. LOL
