    Doctor just gave new recovery date...

    Discovery of torn muscles and partially ruptured Achilles tendon has pushed on the doc's speculated recovery date from my crash (May, 10th) out to August 10th.

    So you can't ride abike for a long time- Bet you will be though.

    So while you are off the bike- Don't forget the rest of body will lose fitness if you don't keep using it. Get down the gym and get a training programme for everything above the injury- that is not going to put strain on the injury and put the recovery date back. Had 2 prolongued periods of Inactivity after surgery and after the first spell of 5 months of doing no exercise- when the second one came up- I was down the gym working the rest of the body. Didn't help though as the first hill I came across and someone had made it twice as steep as it used to be.

    Good luck on the re-training programme.
    How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.

    The doctor has me in physical therapy, to gain range of motion back in my shoulder. Soon therapy will start for my leg as well. I am looking forward to riding again though; for sure. Already started shopping for a new bike to build

    This may represent karma for converting a Puch into a single-speed. Be careful, kids!

    As soon as you can walk, start building up to an hour or two a day. Does wonders for healing.

    Yeah, but I more than make up for it with class.
