Yesterday was my 4 week Doctors appointment to see how my hip stress fracture was healing.
I GOT THE GOOD TO GO!
I can now Swim/Ride/Elliptical/Strength Train

Last night I got Rosalita all ready for riding again...
Switched my saddle, replaced my cleats, aired up the tires and got all my gear out of the closet!
This morning was a beautiful morning for a RIDE!
We were excited to get out the door!
So... now that I am riding again I have decided that I am putting my ego in check and going off of HR training. First I will be building up my AEROBIC base...which basically means that I will be going at snail pace since I usually pedal until I can't breath! #oops
I only had to stop once to get my HR in check today and that was at the beginning of the ride...
I MAY HAVE BEEN EXCITED!
For the most part staying at 139 (my now zone 3) wasn't all that bad. It was tough going that slow but in time it will help me and for now I know it is helping me "take it easy."
SO now I can ride again!
Two more weeks then I can get back to running!
Swim, Bike, Elliptical Mandi is comin' at cha!
I don't know about you, but I can't believe how fast those 4 weeks went by?!
I should be on week 7 for my Barb's 70.3 training.
Talking with my doctor I will probably not be able to do the run... BUT the swim and bike should be doable! #happymandi #disappointedBUThappytobehealing
I am so thankful that my hip is healing. AND thank you all for your amazing support and encouragement. I have the best support system a girl could ask for!
