    Injury Update-Cleared to ride-finally

    Yep I can finally begin riding again. Its been a long time coming, seems like forever. I had a CT scan yesterday, which showed now fracture or damage at all. Well maybe a little arthritis and a small bone spur. He advised I start out easy, if I have more pain in the next week he will do an injection to calm the irritated muscle and joint. So without hesitation I will be suiting up today after work to try out my new roadie on a flat 30 minute easy ride. Hopefully you will be seeing me on the trails in a few weeks, but Ill be with gears for atleast a month.

    Nice! How long has it been since you were healthy?

    Fall is the best riding season so don't mess it up by riding too much too soon.

    On the bright side, you should have enough honey-do credits.

    Its been since the beginning of July. I did a short mellow ride last nite, 25 minutes on the road bike, just around the neighborhood. It felt good to ride no matter how long/short the ride was. My legs felt a little strange pedaling again, not to mention a bit weak and weary. I got leg burn fairly easily, but it was good to get the blood flowing. The new road machine just wants to go fast, very responsive and smoothe. I was a bit sore last nite, but feel really good this morning. Tonite I am planing a little bit more of a ride with a short climb. Usually takes me about 45 minutes to do this loop, and the climb is pretty gradual and only a couple miles. Its kinda demoralizing to lose all the fitness and strength I had, but Im happy to be riding again, and Im sure it will return shortly.

    Thanks for the encouragement.

    Dan51 enjoy Tangina, dont let her take advantage of you.

    ps- the new look pedals on my roadie feel way differant then the old shimano's I was running, float is a good thing I think.

    The Madone is not set up to my liking yet, but I need some rides on it to get a feel for what I like and dont. The cranks are to be changed over to compact, no charge. The stem I am gonna try less rise and perhaps a bit shorter. The bike rocks, way faster and better response. Much more confidence in the corners too. When I stand to hammer it lunges to speed in a heart beat. Much more comfort too.

    not sure, but but from the pic, it looks like the stem should be flipped (for the less rise).

    Nah, the stem we put on is 17 deg. too steep to flip. I need to go to about 7 deg or so then maybe flip it in a while. Actually its very comfy, but I dont like thelook with the stack of spacers and the 17 deg stem. If I did flip it, it would be a huge change.

    Ride # 2 is in the books, this time a bit more of a ride. I did my regular mid week road ride which has a little climbing from Los Gatos up and over Kennedy and dont to Shannon. Fun ride, but boy am I out of shape. I also have a douoble ring instead of a triple on the new bike so I had to turn bigger gears, cant wait to get the compact crank set. Over all the ride felt good, and no pain after or this morning. Today I will rest, and sat I will up the ante a bit more. If I can keep on schedule Ill hit the dirt next weekend, on the Yeti of course, no SS yet.
