A wobbly 30 miles
Yesterday was my first time back on the bike in 3 weeks due to the back/leg problems. I joined the Sunday morning breakfast gang and planned to do only the first 5 miles on the trail with them. At the 5 mile point the ride usually takes to the roads and hills. Well, they decided to change the route and do 15 miles on the trail then hit the roads and hills. They even kept the pace down to a sensible 13-14mph and I was able to keep up
One of the riders stayed with me at the turn off point and we enjoyed a leisurely ride back to our cars.
I'm happy to say there was no pain but it's really tough getting on/off the bike since the left leg still has some numbness and the muscles around the knee are a little shaky at times. This morning the left leg seems to have a little more feeling and I'm not experiencing any pain from the ride
I won't be riding TOSRV this weekend. I don't think I'm quite ready for back-to-back centuries and even the 1/2 TOSRV would be too much at the present. Oh well, there's always next year. I don't want to do anything to jeopardize XOBA in July.
Enjoy the little things in life, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.
