I got tired waiting for my shorter crankset so I decided to ride my beater around the block. It didn't hurt as much as trying to ride the recumbent but it still hurt quite a bit. I definitely wasn't tempted to try another lap.
The pain felt like cartiledge rather than the bone. I'm still really weak and the toe on the bad leg pointed out quite a bit. My beater has a 175mm crank so I suspect a shorter crank wouldn't have hurt so bad.
Still, it's the longest ride for me since Labor Day so I've broken the ice. Tomorrow's another day.
