The Michigander: Can I do it this year?
The Michigander multi-day bicycle tour is a month off. And I’ve been pretty much off my training for the past month, thanks to that ugly bone-on-bone knee problem that hit me in March.
It has kept me from long training rides and even the spinning classes I do three and four days a week.
Today, finally, I did an hour long spinning class. The knee twinged a lot but I’m walking and there finally doesn’t seem to be any swelling.
I’ve done every Michigander for a decade. The folks who ride it every year are like family. The 2012 ride tour kicks off in a month. I do not want to miss it!
Can I do it? I’m thinking …yeah, I can, as long as the knee doesn’t swell up to a basketball again. I’ll go easy. Stay seated on the hills.
I need to get some long rides under my seat but today’s spinning class was encouraging.
