Tonight marked a triumphant return to the trail after nearly three weeks away. Since the MS150 earlier this month, there’s been all kinds of things inserting themselves in between me and my bike, and that’s been a crying shame.
It was wonderful to get back out there, especially with the weather we’re having. On the way back to the trailhead, it was misting rain, and the temperature couldn’t have been more that 65 — perfect weather for me! It’s supposed to be cool for the next several days, so I expect I’ll get back out there to burn up more miles on the trail.
My recently-injured ankle didn’t bother me too bad, although I can definitely tell that I’ve ridden on it. I’ve just gotta keep strengthening it, and keep it flexible by working with it. There’s no better medicine for it than being on my bike!
