Yesterday I had a new experience which was pretty fun, though maybe a little scary.
One of the Doctors took me for a very short, very slowish ride on his Screaming Eagle Harley. I have never been on a Motorcycle. I have always been a bit leary of them, as we see many many road bike accidents each year. Usually the injuries are severe, even for people wearing protective equipment. You just are not protected very well on a Motorcycle, leading them to be nicknamed in Emergency rooms all over the world I'm sure, "Donor-cycles" The other reason of course is that many many riders of the Donor Cycle happen to be young guys, who have great organs. I mean, if you are going to get a heart transplanted, it isn't going to be from an 80 year old lady. It's going to come from a young person who still has mileage left on the heart. I was surprised at how fun it was!!!! Admitted, he told me that we went about 15 miles an hour, so I don't think I got the full Harley Experience, but he did keep sort of saying, "you'll see, it gets better, its more fun. Since there was not an extra helmet he didnt want to take me out of the parking lot, and I appreciate that.
My old experience is that I seem to have mildly injured my right leg. It's a different leg this time, but its oddly a very similar injury. I rested it for 4 days straight and ran this morning, it's still a little bad, but runnable, so everything is on for the half, but I will have to see how it goes when I ramp up the training more.
