Muscle Injuries

I would like feedback on how, others have recuperated from injuries involving the leg muscles?

Ditto. It's hard to comment when you don't know what's going on.

I'm recuperating from a stress fracture right now. Plenty of time off the bike, stiff soled shoes, and RICE.

Do you know the cause of the stress fracture? Hopefully some activity other than cycling...

Impact. I teach a lot of aerobics classes and ride quite a bit. My shoes could be a bit better too- I need harder soled shoes when riding and teaching aerobics classes.

I think by RICE Koffee means:

Rest
Ice
Compression
Elevation.

...before you take off to your local Chinese or Indian takeout...

Yeah. That kind of rice.

I'm still resting, icing, compressing, and elevating, btw.

Acronyms..gotta love 'em.

Reminds me of an incident back in the 70's...a reporter was interviewing a local marathon runner that was going to the Olympics. It was "live at five" on the news.

Reporter: "So, how do you train for these long races?"

Runner: "Well, I do a lot of LSD."

The look of shock on the reporter's face was priceless, not knowing what to say next.

Of course, any runner knows that LSD means Long Steady Distance!

As an old fogey who was running during that era when Joe Henderson popularized LSD, its actually Slow not Steady.

Oops...

Well that was my era..guess the ol' memory isn't what it used to be.

But it's still a good story!
