Man, sometimes you just can't figure out exactly WTF went through your mind when you did something this stupid and you knew it exactly 1 mili-second before it happened.
Well I only have 1 speed sensor for my Polar S725 so I switch it between my road and MTB. So I'm on the road bike and going to do intervals (trainings going really BTW, got in good base miles just about to start the hadr training, intervals etc) and damn sensor isn't on tight and is blowing away from the wheel and not registering speed. So I stop the bike and fix it, get back up to speed and again it does it, stop again.
Well it does it twice more and I stop once more then the 2nd time I reach down to just nudge the sensor back towards the wheel and as my hand is inches away and no turning back the alarm goes off, but to late and my thumb has been sucked into the spokes. I manage to not get it fully trapped, just rubbed and it doesn't feel like nothing much happened just got a "slap on the wrist for being stupid" well I lift the hand up and it's a little bit worse than it feels, plus it's the thumb I tore ligaments in year before that gives me trouble and it's injured it again.
SO guess I'm not doing any off-road for a while and should prob be able to at least get on the road bike fairly soon - will know later today I guess when I go to the Doc. I've attached a pic, not the nicest looking thing. I did go up by my bro and have him pul the skin back and wash it out with Detol and put anti-biotic power in it, but he says I need to get the skincut off as it won't heal back - Opinions??
