I had a great ride last night. It was my first somewhat real ride since hurting my back. Sure it was only 21km but that was enough for me. Back was pretty sore by the time I got home. Thank god for advil and heating pads.
The one thing I am still hesitant to do is skate. I haven't skated in months and I am just fearful that being in that bent over position with my hips and legs moving is only going to aggravate an already tender area. Just not sure if what I am experiencing is fear or common sense. The line between them is so close sometimes.
