My #1 son is in his mid-30's, what we thought of as middle-aged when we were young. He broke his hip in a hard racing crash 4-1/2 weeks ago. A rod in his femur and a few screws later he's been on the trainer for a week. He took his first actual ride today, 16.5 miles. I think his wife is aghast. I'm pleased he's mending so well, but maybe a bit more pain would have kept him off the bike a bit longer. Thank goodness the racing season is coming to a close.
