Lightning at the End of the Tunnel (Week 19)

Unfortunately, the tunnel in this scenario is the carpal tunnel of my left hand and the lightning is the way it feels. Crap. It’s pretty clear that bike adjustments aren’t solving the problem. I’ll see what other non-surgical solutions or treatments I can come up with, probably with the help of doctors at this point. If I need to have surgery (I had my right hand done years ago), that will be the end of the Ride 365 goal but, theoretically, I could get back in the saddle after recovery, make up the lost ground, and still reach 100 vertical miles.
