Put bike back together after not riding for well over 2 months. pumped up tyre. decided to test it out by investigating my new neighbourhood: Stapleton, "village", north/ NE Bristol. BS16 1FB.
My unfitness is off the scale - and i'm not feeling well enough to start training. I get very out of breath. & racing heart. Nice to get out tho.
I'm seeing my specialist in 2 weeks time - the one who came round each day when i was in hospital - and will ask him about the long term effect on my resilience this operation has had, at my age, and with my suspect medical history. There is no "determination" to get back to being a "great second placer" . There is a desire to be well & happy in life.
Until then, I'm doing no running & not entering any races, & if i go to O, i will be walking / gentle "jog". This is fine. CompassSport cup - i won't be second to Clive. BOK captain, take note.
Oh - saw diabetes nurse last week - it's stabilised, but she told me i've lost 7 KILOS since January. I'm sub-65kg. Awful. mind you, 72kg was quite fat.....! :) https://gb.mapometer.com/cycling/route_4613065.htm...
