A Late Start to the 2016 Cycling Season

With physical therapy wrapping up at Sanford Health, I’m tentatively returning to cycling.  No long distance jaunts yet…  …just easy spinning in town.  I got out early this morning for a brief ride on the Koga-Miyata; the first of the year on that bike.

(That’s about right…  Feeling like a thin shadow of my former self.)

Surgery went well and the recovery has been smooth.  My last post-op appointment was on April 8th, where I received marching orders to ‘protect both shoulders’ going forward.  That means weight training on a more-or-less continuous basis and (no big surprise) avoiding any nasty falls on (or off) the bike.  Now that all off-road bikes have been sold (the Karate Monkey was the last to go), I’m hoping to stay good on that second bit of guidance.
