To Ride or Not to Ride; That is the Question

It's Saturday. I want to ride, but...I am once again recovering from an injury. I just spent the last hour Googling for advice on what to do. 10 stitches in my right calf. Bike injury from Monday afternoon. My way of adding excitement to our DC to Mount Vernon ride. So, what to do? It seems clear that I could end up with a slower recovery and bigger scar on one hand; or I could end up frstrated, less fit and possibly gaining a pound or two on the other hand. Then there is what I am calling the "fun" factor: I like to ride on Saturday with my husband, sweating together and enjoying the scenic Western Dane County roads. I have a short time to ponder. Wish I had an expert to give me definitive guidance!
