Good Ride, Achilles doing Well

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

Took a short ride this morning, about 15.6 miles, and held back out of concern for re-injuring my Achilles. However, I learned last year that if done right, a brisk ride can actually promote the healing process so I pushed the pace but mainly with a high cadence and low torque. Came in at an average speed of 17.2 mph, so not too fast but fast enough to promote healing--I hope. Worked last year when the injury was much worse, so hopefully it will work again this year.

Make it a great day! God bless.
