I started working part time in late September and started working full time this week. Yesterday I took a 1.5 mile walk at lunch which I'm a bit sore from today but the fact that I was able to do it and work the rest of the day is a good sign. I'm hoping to get on the single speed and ride the mostly flat 3.1 mile loop around Lake Sacajawea by the end of the month. Next month is the annual trail work party for Growler's Gulch which I plan to participate in even if all I can do is provide support. I also ordered a Ostomy Armor product to protect my illeostomy while riding. I talked directly to the owner and inventor of this product who is also an ostomate. He is a very active guy and is continually developing the product, in fact he is working on a lighter kevlar/carbon fiber model...now that would be cool!
