Road Bike 1:42:24 [3] 27.2 mi (15.9 mph)

Rail trail - no pain! Knee did not bother me this time.

The rail trail is a really hard place to do an easy/recovery effort ride sometimes. I was passing people no problem going 17.2 with a very slight tail wind. However, one guy I passed (who I KNOW was going slower the whole rest of the time because I passed him going the other way before i hit my tur around) laid on the effort and sprinted back past me... just before he hit his finish point. Another guy "cargo shorts and world's biggest fanny pack" put on the effort to pass me back about 2 miles before the end of the trail hitting the end maybe 100m in front of me. Congratulations, you passed a girl on a recovery ride. You're such a man... OOohh, did I want to kick it in and show him what was up. No no, focus on the plan. Focus on the planned ride. I kept it under control.

Mountain Bike (Road) 1:12:53 [3] 26.3 km (21.7 kph)

RIDING MY BIKE! Whoo!!! I got the OK from the doc on yesterday, so I got to ride today! Very happy and had multiple giggle sessions. One was because I smelled elmer's glue and then 30 seconds later, it was more like mustard. I was thinking that the people at that farm house were probably grilling burgers with mustard... (and elmer's glue?) I used to love to put elmer's glue on my hands and let it dry so I could peel it off. Fun.

Happy as I was to be on the bike, I felt a little sluggish in the legs and my right knee was a bit achey at the end. Maybe from favoring that right foot for 10 days?
