After a rookie mistake leading to a crash over on Tiger Mountain in Issaquah WA and fracturing my left wrist I hopped back on the bike at went for a nice and easy gravel ride. I broke my wrist in mid July, probably the worst possible time to have that happen, got out of the cast first week of September. It was still sore so I took it easy and the only riding I was doing was commuting (I will be doing a write up on my new commuter soon!). The ride was great, took the north end of the Snoqualmie Valley trail from Duvall to Fall city, a total of 30 miles. If felt great but made me realize how quickly you get out of shade and need to start from scratch.
Starting over does have its benefits, hitting a reset can allow more thought on how you want to tackle recovery and fitness. My wrist was sore the next day and the progress will be slow, but I am hoping this cadence of riding and gaining my strength back will be more effective than ever. I am hoping I will keep up an exercise routine so I have a strong momentum into next season.
