Bring on the bike path.

I got reacquainted with Whitey Wrecker last night, and not just by lovingly caressing her white sleek body. I rode her down the street and around the corner and through the neighborhood, all the while chatting like old buddies.

I know that I probably shouldn't be riding my bike on the road yet (or at all), but waahhh i wanna . In fact, I find it much easier to ride than to walk, as walking still puts an uncomfortable amount of weight on my knee. And although he doesn't realize it, my doctor and I are having a personal disagreement on the philosophy of life, love, and rehab and he is close to being broken up with, so I really don't care what he thinks.

It felt great to transport my body in a non motorized manner. It felt good to get out and exercise. And overall, my knee just feels good. So I will continue my careful but dedicated self rehab and rejoice about the fact that I am at 98% full range of motion, very little swelling, and can now pop my quad.

Woohoooo!!! Excellent news, dude, I'm so happy that you and Whitey are back at it again. We'll have to hit up the Greenbelt sometime soon... then Papago, then SM, Prescott, and beyond, can't wait!
