Big news!: rode the Spot today on desert road @ JEM TH. Down & back up pedaling easily and going very slowly over any rough stuff. 1 hour 45 mins, 12 miles. Long way to get back up. Happy to ride w/ some physical effort. I have lost about 3 pounds of muscle mass and my cardio is shot. I kept my heart rate down and didn’t pee blood.
Yesterday I replaced my Turner pivot bushings w/ ones made by PUSH that were given to me but I never got around to installing them. I did that yesterday as well as washed the bike. The suspension was soo smooth pedaling in the parking lot I needed to find out today if I put the bike back together correctly. Very gingerly i rode out the desert road and slowing down for all the dips to minimize any shock. And on the uphills I kept my hr way low. I was pleased with how I disciplined myself and how my body felt. Today is 4 weeks & a day since fall.
I still have pain in my left front below the rib cage probably from the hematoma. Hydrocodone dulls that. I have a pretty severe cold hampering me.
Tomorrow is ST George for van service.
I ordered a solar charger for the rig battery that will arrive this week. I will set it in sun and plug it into the cigarette lighter to back charge the battery while listening to the sound system.
