And it didn't hurt my back! !!! !!!
See, I haven't biked in the morning for almost a year now. 1 year of fearing that I'm going to screw it up again so badly that I won't be able to walk. Last year in August I tried before a physical therapy appointment and just a 2-mile ride caused me enough pain to put me back 2 weeks in therapy. I've been afraid ever since, especially since I still am stiff every morning and have a little pain.
BUT IT WORKED THIS MORNING!!!! I haven't ridden to work in more than a year, despite only living a few miles away. I love riding my bike! It's so much fun (except the hills: not really very fun)
(Dancing around the room. Then stretching, ok!)
