Diagnosis -> Pain
GP and ENT checked me out from stem to stern, turn my head and cough, snaked a scope through my nose into my windpipe, the whole deal and I am deemed bruised but basically intact. Sara is a little freaked, Ruth is being extremely relaxed about the whole thing (attentive, not preaching because it's not her style and she can see she doesn't need to). Reflecting on this debacle - the fault was entirely mine - if I can't see that my line is safe at the current speed, etc then it is up to me to hit the breaks or whatever. I made the same mistake on a recent morning ride, diving into a turn without knowing what was around the corner (log across the trail, crash, ouch). So clearly a judgement issue on my part that needs some work.
