Went out today to test how the muscles were healing. Left here 08.45 and apart from a 30-minute stop for a cuppa mid-morning and a 45-minute lunch nosh, arrived back here at 16.55. 🙂
So, just under 7 hours riding; longest I’ve been out for ages! Arm was OK-ish but now resting in a sling for a while. More Arnica Gel and Deep Heat combined with relatively early night – kill or cure time. 8)
I don’t have a computer or anything but my friend who lives about 6 miles from me had just over 80 miles on his, so I recon about 92-ish. Not a very high average speed, about 13mph but we did do a few big Chiltern Hills. 😕
Strange that you should mention my bum, as the one thing I can’t really do with this arm is stand up with any power. Was’t too bad, though. I have a Santini bib-shorts / bib-tights combo and that’s quite cumfy, especially with a dose of ‘botty cream’ on my lower end!
Got used to not having one when racing, as I’m very long sighted and can’t really see anything much closer than about a metre away, despite now wearing glasses in which the lenses look like pub windows! 🙁
