And you're right, I didn't ride the Krampus there, but the Allez.
I knew you had to be generally fit, otherwise you could never have done it. Too bad you're 37 because the healing process will take longer than if you were 20. Especially when it comes to recovery, aging is a bitter pill. I and many others have fallen into the trap of being fit and then over-extending using activity-specific body parts. Anyhow, feel better and heal well.
