Yesterday I went for a medium length (well, medium length for me at least) ride. I did 37 miles and averaged out a very good pace for me on my ancient bike. My leg muscles have noticeably adapted to biking. I was able to ride hard for a relatively long time and it wasn’t my legs didn’t give up on me. It’s amazing how quickly the body adapts.
I also put the aircast back on. After one day of not wearing it my ankle felt strange, possibly painful just walking on it. I don’t know what to think about that.
