WooHoo Back on my Bike!!

Monday, August 16, 2010

It was 4 weeks ago today that I wiped out on my bike and sprained my ankle and got a beautiful case of road rash! Yesterday morning my husband and I went for a bike ride for the first time since it happened. Wow! It was awesome. It was so weird though, I kept thinking my bike was in a really low gear because it was very easy to pedal, but it was actually in one of the highest gears. Who knew that taking a month off due to injury would make it easier? I'm thrilled that I only gained 1 pound during the 4 weeks....I was petrified that I would gain the 10 pounds back that I had lost since I started SP in April. Life is good and I'm getting ready to go for another bike ride after I log my breakfast.

    good for you! Biking is my favorite too. I took a couple of falls off my bike recently and now (gulp) my nickname is CRASH. LOL! I can relate to the highest gear as well. Isn't it awesome? Good for you!!!!
