    No Biking for at least 7 days.

    Fell into a large hole today in my front yard, I was working on our sprinkler system and fell into the hole that I had dug to fix it, seems that I may have possibly tore a ligiment, so for the next 7 days I"m in a knee brace and no movement or bending, so no riding next week is going to be a slow week for the miles.

    I'm in the same boat. The after-effects of my spill during last weekend's activities certainly aren't terribly serious, but I'm under strict instructions to take it easy for the next several weeks. Lots of chest/torso area bruising and a very real lack of lung capacity aren't making riding very fun.

    Oh well.. more days in the year

    The Doctor just gave me the go ahead to get back on my road bike, no mountain biking for 3 to 6 months. he basically said that if I'm biking I don't need physical therapy , glad for that. So I'll give it a try tomorrow, I might even be able to get one mile in for the spinner saturday this week

    Cool beans....start out easy and raise the intensity as you can handle it.....no sense in aggravating the knee!

    2.5 miles today, after about the first 1/2 mile of pain the knee felt really good, didn't want to push it to hard so I'm guessing I'll get 5 miles for this week, I'm planning on a 2.5 mile day tomorrow .

    I feel for ya, man... I hurt my back last week, didn't really think much of it, and went to play bike polo... wow, that was a bad idea. Now I'm laid up until it gets better; I'd guess about a week.

    Oh well - it gives me more time to figure out what bike I want to buy next :-)

    So Jaxgtr what was your mileage, I made 6.5 for the week. I think I might try for 40 next week, but that may be pushing it.
