All I hear on TV is how brave they're for riding around like 2-4 weeks after breaking a bone. I broke my collar bone and some other bone in my arm a week and a half ago and I feel fine. I took all the shit they gave me off and went around riding for a few hours today and it doesn't hurt a bit. I just don't get it, I'm back doing stuff as normal, sure everything hurts and you cannot lift heavy stuff like you used to be able to, you just get over it.
If someone paid me like 10 million a year to race, I think I'd soon get over the pain :\
