As per my previous post. Got home last night, took the bike off the trainer and rode.
It wasn’t pretty.
It didn’t feel natural.
My butt hurt afterwards.
I started by going up and down the driveway and around the yard.
The hardest and dangerous part of riding is stopping. I’m having twinges in the knee when I plant the foot a certain way so when I place it for stopping I need to be careful as shit. I’m about trackstranding before I put my foot down.
On a side note, theres nothing like having an 8 year old thats a natural born tattle tale. As soon as she saw me going down the driveway shes running into the house screaming"Mommy, daddys on his bike". Ha, mommy was preoccupied with a new comforter from linen’s and things. She could care less.
So my first trip since 2 days before surgery came out to 4 1/2 miles of road.
I can’t really use the leg as a shock absorber yet, my butt stayed planted the whole time, but the actual pedaling is no problem.
Watch out, the gains are going start happening big time now.
