This morning we did a 13 km rehabilitation ride. Since we acquired a dog back in June our cycling hours have been vastly reduced and my fitness levels have suffered. In August I injured my knee so today was a test to see how I would cope being back in the saddle.
We left Rick at home, he was not happy and gave us a pathetic "don't leave me behind" look.
Freewheeling down the hill in the crisp, chill air of early morning, squinting because the sun was so low, was a joy. The lanes are littered with fallen chestnuts so it was quite difficult trying to avoid the prickly little balls. My knee did quite well but ached and creaked a bit on the climbs.

Is Rick in or out?ReplyDelete
Rick stayed at home indoors. (The photo is of a farm dog that we cycled past.)Delete
I can appreciate how pleasant it must have been to get back on your bike Sue. My knee stopped me from walking freely for many weeks.ReplyDelete
It was nice to get out again but I'm not ready for the Tour de France yet.Delete
Some lovely weather on the way, perfect for cycling.ReplyDelete
It was a beautiful day yesterday.Delete
Lovely photo of the misty morning. I'm glad your knee is doing much better Sue.ReplyDelete
Greetings Maria x
Thanks Maria. I love to see the early morning mist below us in the valley.Delete
Good for you! Glad you are getting back to it! I need to start exercising again; I think I'm finally up to it without causing a setback. :)ReplyDelete
