Oww, But in a Good Way

A breakthrough ride of sorts today: 47 miles in 3:03 at 15.4mph.  This is the longest and fastest ride since the injury.  There was some fast group riding on the way out, then pretty hard solo riding on the way back in spite of the fact that the legs didn't feel great.  But the mind was willing and the legs held up.  It helped that I have tiny gears and was willing to use them to "rest" at fairly high cadence.  Three hours after the ride, the legs are mighty sore, but happy.
