I just rode for the first time in 10 years after my surgery. My thighs and calves are sore. I did good though riding regular and switch. Only crashed like 3 times and two were off a hip. My bad ankle hurts a bit but not too bad. We'll see how my body feels tomorrow and the next day

Yea, glad it worked out for ya man!

I'm concerned about my ankle also. What scares me is that it's my back foot. I'm gonna try and ride friday if anything is decent enough.

I think your thighs and calves are going to hurt more than your ankle. Report back after you ride. I'd like to see how it went for ya

I was gonna go today but freaking rain and warm temps thwarted my attempts again...

I'll keep you updated. My thighs are always sore in the beginning. My ankle will probably outlast the rest of my body...lol

10 years is a long time man. What kind of surgery did you have?

I can relate to this topic, past Saturday was ending my run at Brian head when I navigated to a soft patch of snow. I was doing a toe turn and end up getting caught in the patch, I stumbled and landed face first. Thanks to a helmet no head injuries but my right leg twisted and felt like I broke a bone. Layer their for five mins and quickly got up walking all the way down. I first did some research and thought it was acl or some ligament tore which I'm highly doubting due to my physical interaction with the right leg. I still can't pivot my leg but because my knees are bruised. Which doesn't allow me to lock my leg. Hopefully it ain't bad and ill wait a few days or a week. I natural allow healing stages before seeing a doctor.

Never have i ever considered quitting... ive been tomahawked head over heals wincing in pain, but ive been fortunate enough to never have been injured on a snowboard... (knock on wood) now... on a football field? thats a totally different story... BUT it is the same mindset. Broke 3 ribs, tore my mcl, broke my arm, separated my shoulders multiple times, broke all 10 fingers, broke both hands.... Ive been doing it for 12 years, i went to college to prolong my career... 3 years from now when its all said and done will be the saddest time of my life...
If you fall get back up and try again... If it hurts take a minute to regroup, if it still hurts after a few minutes get back up finish the run, and go see firstaid... but if you can avoid it never take the ride of shame in the gurney!
