Recovery Update

by on January 24, 2012

These post-surgery limitations are getting old!  The pain has been compounded by swelling in my foot the past several days.  Elevation and ice help, but as I attempt to increase my activity level, my fatigue, swelling and pain also increase.  My mantras are “I’m patient”, and “Soon and very soon”.  Ha!

I climbed back on the bike again this morning.  One legged riding on a trainer without the opportunity of coasting is simply like riding uphill using only one leg.  Ten minutes was sufficient this morning also.  Now I need to stop listening to my excuses for not getting on the bike.  February 1 is the possible date I’ll be permitted to use 2 legs on the trainer.  I’m looking forward to it.

I am frustrated by the warm weather we’ve had most of January.  There is a lot of outdoor riding going on that I’m missing!

I’m a little grumbly, aren’t I?

  1. Understandably grumbly. Remember that patience is a virtue and if you rush things you’ll be wishing you could enjoy cycling during the Spring.
