MRI Today

Funny story. I woke up this morning half laughing from a dream I had last night about my MRI. I was sitting at a table with 2 other people reviewing the results of my MRI, Bob, trainer on the Biggest Loser and Lucho, my coach. Bob sat there arms crossed, tight lipped just nodding his head while Lucho gave me his personal diagnosis. This is what he said. "Rick, you have a strained Riviara muscle in your hip." I just kept looking at the paper to be sure I was hearing that right and making sure the letters were R-I-V-I-A-R-A. Yea, like the oldsmobile or the nice vacation spot.
Anyway, I pestered the technician pretty hard for her thoughts on what she saw, but she wouldn't crack. I've got my fingers crossed for a strained Riveria muscle and I should know this evening or tomorrow morning.


  1. Nice. There is only one place where that is cured.

  2. The back seat of an Oldsmobile?

  3. Yeah, get your arse down to Monte Carlo. Couple o' weeks on the beach and you should be good to go - bring your Skins though, it's pretty cold this time of year.

    Nice header pic - where's that? That trail heading up the right side of the valley looks like a beauty.

  4. I'd love to get on that trail, as well.
    The header pic is the Col du Tourmalet in the Pyrenees, a great climb done alot in the TDF. Bob Roll calls it the Tore My Legs Off.
