I forgot...

...to post that I had an 18 mile bike ride on Friday. I just did it at the downtown airport since it's flat out there, so less pressure on the stress-fractured leg that I'm not supposed to be doing anything on... :\ It was beautiful out and a pretty pleasant ride, other than the strain on my neck/shoulder that always bothers me from the 2 herniated discs in my neck. The ride took about an hour and 15 min. Average speed = 14.7 mph

"the leg you're not supposed to do anything on" - ha! You sound exactly like some other people I know, hmm...who could those people be? Well, I'm glad you got a long run in before the surgery, that has to make you feel better!

The key to keeping the strain on the back and neck at bay is to remind yourself to keep your shoulders down and back. Imagine that you are trying to pinch your shoulder blades together! Nice ride, however!
