Twisted ankle

Sunday evening working in the garden/yard, I stepped in a hole and twisted the ankle over pretty good. Hate when that happens. Hobbled around the rest of the evening hurting pretty bad.

Monday woke up. Could barely walk. Hurt like a bugger. Felt like the rotation of the pedals wouldn't bother it so told Wifey I was heading out. 15 miles of my hills (I have a 100% speed differential, 3 mph uphill, 30 mph down hill) and I got back after an hour 40 minutes with no more pain in the ankle at all. Swelling went down to nothing as well.

This biking stuff is awesome!

Glad things worked out. But don't think your ankle is completely healed. Baby it for a week or so.
I love cycling with my road when my lower back is sore. Leaving over puts no pressure on the back and working the legs gets the blood flowing to all the right places.
