Siu, I think you've got it. Always look for the obvious. I'll start easing them out a bit, each ride. By the way, could I have the animation you used to use, to post on another website? The one about being thankful for knowing how to roll? PM me if it's available somewhere.
Track stand. Now, Stapfam, why didn't I think of that myself?
I have the feeling that muscle memory might be more nerve memory than muscle. I had some walking problems due to that after my last accident, and there might be some connection to this. Anyway, I no longer feel pressure through my feet, if you can imagine that. I feel hot, cold, and pain, but no sensation of pressure. Still, after riding a bit, my feet do find the clips. Oh, I'm using a one way cleat. My old shoes disappeared while in the hospital, and I had a set of a different style of cleat that came with my second set of pedals, so that's what I went with to save $20.00.
Some people are like a Slinky ... not really good for anything, but you still can't help but smile when you shove them down the stairs.
