Success! The doctor told me yesterday to get off the crutches, to get on my bike and to start working out again. I took his advice.
I did a super easy workout – 30 minutes spinning on the trainer in the gym at a cadence of 75 and less than 100watts. It felt tight and stiff, but I made it all the way through. Yee Ha! The first step is the hardest.
Tomorrow, a swim workout.
I suppose that Ricky Carmichael had to go through all of this as well when he jacked his knee. He went on to dominate for more years. Let’s hope.
I go in for an MRI tomorrow, and then of course I get to wait for a week to hear the results of that.
