glad to be back on the bike

So I've been off my bike for about a month due to a stress fracture from my last marathon. It has seemed like forever since i have ridden but it has only been about month. But the doc cleared me to ride again a few days ago, im just not supposed to run for another couple weeks

Welcome back! I just started back after a month of family emergency and a month of tendinitis in one knee. It's great to be back riding but frustrating because I have to play catch up to where I was two months ago.

Take it easy on your return and don't overdo it.

i am still on a no running profile from the doc. the riding is cool though. i think i have a torn lateral miniscus but it must be very small because they are having a hard time seeing it in the x-rays and mri. the description of how a torn lateral miniscus feels is exactly my pain.

so i kind of understand what you are saying about the running stuff. i grew up a runner
