Back in the Saddle

My surgeon told me that I had to wait until at least 4 weeks after surgery to get back on the bike. Friday was my one month postop date, so I was happy to get back in the saddle again. Saturday I rode 7.5 miles; Sunday I rode 11.5; and today I rode 11.5. I'm anxious to get back to some bigger miles on the weekends.

Though the amount of tourists was a bit heavy today, Memorial Day, we had lovely weather and a nice ride around DC.



We ate lunch by the C&O Canal in Georgetown. Dean & DeLucca is our favorite lunch spot on that ride.

I had a simple, but yummy, salad. Mmmm......

And I didn't think about school once.

I'm so envious! My messed up knee is keeping me from riding my bike! (Not that I have time- we're packing and moving and all that!) So can I live vicariously through you? Your rides and lunch sound fabulous!!
