So it's been a long time since I've done an update. For the past few weeks I've been riding my trainer indoors since my shoulder wouldn't allow me to ride outside. It's been pretty frustrating but luckily the weather hasn't been all that great so it wasn't like I was missing good weather to bike to outside. This week I started going to physical therapy for my shoulder. I got some good exercises to do but they do hurt. On Tuesday I actually rode outside for the first time since my accident. I didn't know what to expect but it went fairly well. Every time I went over a crack or bump in the rode I did get a lot of pain in my shoulder but I tried to minimize that by riding with one arm for a while. It did feel good to back out on the rode though. Wednesday it rained again so I rode the trainer but today I did get to go outside again. I felt even better today. The next few days I'm supposed to put in time on the bike outside. Friday I've got an easy hour long ride planned and Saturday I'll be out for 3+ hrs and Sunday for 2 hrs. So we'll see Monday how the shoulder sustained the weekend. I'm hoping it will be stronger. We can only hope.
