Back in the saddle?

Well....sort of 🤪

At my last appointment with the orthopedic doctor, I asked him, can I get back on my bike? His response: Oh no no no. Not for at least 3 months from the date of injury!”

So of course I went home and figured out what day that was and circled it on my calendar! 😂 Date of injury: October 26, 3 months later - January 26. Ironically, this was the day Peter Sagan turned 30. Kinda fitting, then, that the first day my butt touches a bike saddle was on this day...cuz I had been training for the chance to ride with the champ when I had my “moment of stupid.” 

My wonderfully supportive husband set up the bike trainer in the living room for me, and I officially sat on a bike for the first time since my crash. 🥳 So...I didn’t exactly go for a ride, but I did get on a bike! 🤪 Why so serious, one might say. And now the question remains: WHEN will I actually officially be back on my bike? Well, I’m doing physical therapy now, and I’ve shown great improvement in my range of motion in the last 3-4 weeks, so.......We will see! 😉

Oh and be on the lookout for a much delayed Christmas post. Stay tuned 🙃
