    woo-hoo! I got to ride today

    After 32 days without turning a crank the doctor finally let me go riding today! I am restricted to one hour of riding on flat terrain at light effort every other day for the next few weeks. I rode a local railtrail today and covered about 14.5 miles on my one hour ride. Beats the heck out of the one hour daily walks I have been doing. With luck I might get to ride a century( or at least a metric) in September

    I'm tempted to say do overdo it- just to prove that you can- but let your body dictate what you are going to do. 14.5 after a 32 day lay off- should put you in line for a century by the autumn.

    Great to see another set of legs reworking.

    Yeah it felt good, I still have this open wound from my bladder surgery that I am waiting on to heal enough inside to be stitched again. It has healed enough that infection is no longer a big issue and is now small enough to allow the use of a small bandage.

    It's great that getting back on your bike is the focus of your recovery. It gives you goals and something to look forward to. I'm not sure everyone who is recovering from surgery or an illness is so lucky.
    Truth is stranger than reality.
