Final taper ride--check. A short bike at a decent pace and I managed to beat the rain, too. So, that's all--c'est tout. Nothing left to do now but relax, stretch, pack, sleep, eat and hope the bacteria clear out of the lake. (Oh, and spend five hours at the lacrosse play day tomorrow.)
As for the hand, I think it's good to go. It's slightly swollen and sore today, but I can move it easily. Luckily, I think the main point of contact involved muscle/tendon and not bone, and I think the ice really helped--for once, I decided to play it safe and iced that sucker for 30 minutes last night. RICE is such a challenge for me but if there's one thing I've learned, it's that inflammation is the enemy!
