I rode today, and it wasn’t on the stationary trainer.
It wasn’t my road bike either, but it was great. I rode outside with my children.
I took the cruiser out for a spin with the girls. I pulled the bike around to the front of the house and put the kick stand down. I called Katerina over and asked her what she saw. Her eyes got big and she got excited. Then Sophia came over. She got so excited!
That is when I had a little problem; one bike, one child’s seat and two excited little girls. Ultimately, I talked Katerina into riding her tricycle while I followed her with Sophia on the bike. We just went around the block a couple of times. It was a lot of fun.
I felt pretty good too. I wasn’t as weak as I thought I would be. There wasn’t as much pain as I thought I would have, but I did have some pain. It took a little while to get some of the base bike-handling back, but like they say, you don’t forget how to ride a bike.
I don’t think I am ready to go for a real ride again, but I think I am pretty close. Maybe a few trips to the park first.
