September 13, 2021
Today I rode my longest (indoor) bike ride to date; 50 minutes (and 21.7km). It felt good to get a longer bike workout done but I'm also getting to terms with the fact that I'm almost as hopeless with the bike as I am in the pool. Getting into proper mileages will take lots of work.
Today was also the first day in about three weeks totally free of any Ibuprofen or other painkillers. I generally try to avoid taking any medicine or painkillers if I don't need to, but the last couple of weeks I've tried to do everything I can to keep the inflammation down. My body is clearly still in some kind of recovery mode but I'm determined to get over this as soon as possible.
