Easy bike ride

Well, the neurosurgeon said walking and biking were okay, I'm pretty sure he didn't mean any hardcore mountain biking but I'm going to see how I feel the rest of this week and try the singletrack this weekend.  For today, I did:
15.2 miles in 1:31 hrs at a 10.0 mph pace
In Umstead State Park on the bridle trails
My back didn't hurt, my left leg didn't hurt. I was careful to stand up during some of the bumpier parts of the trail but otherwise I was happy to be out there!  I have to start ramping up the bike mileage and the hills since I'm going on a mountain biking vacation in Colorado in mid-May.  Not enough time to get really fast but I hope to not get worn out on the trip (5 days of 20+ miles/day!). 
I'm still icing my back and started stretching, today I could get my hands just slightly past my knees!  I have high hopes that I'm on my way to a full recovery.
