The second storm of the year is coming through and I feel good. I had feared these storms since they have made my bones hurt in the past, but I don’t seem to be bothered by them. I’ve even been riding more and doing some weights. All in all, I am on my longest streak of time without majore swelling and setbacks!
I am pretty happy.
More than once I’ve even chased the kids around. I’ve barely been able to do that for two years. Now I can catch them if I want. I’m still a little scared of the twisting and lateral stuff since I know that is weak, but I am getting more confident.
When I ride, I am still weak, but I can tell I am a lot stronger and I feel better on the bike. A friend suggested a casual century in about 2 months that sounds tempting. I’ll dedicate myself a bit and lay off the holiday junk food and see what happens.
So, how long has it been? The good news is that I haven’t been counting. When I count it out; 16.5 months.
