It’s hard to believe that just over a month ago I couldn’t walk to my bicyle much less ride it. Today I completed a little under 14 miles and I’m really excited about it. A couple of months ago I asked my cardiologist if I would be able to ride by bike again and he assured me that I would be back on it this Spring. At that time I wan’t able to walk any distance at all without getting out of breath so no, I didn’t believe him. Now look at me!!
I’m just now getting to the point where I’m enjoying my rides. When I first started I wan’t able to do anything but concentrate on my breathing. I wasn’t able to look around and enjoy the beauty or take in the smells. Today brought back a lot of memories when I used to ride all the time. The smell of BBQ grilling on the grill, the smell of freashly cut grass and the smell of dead animals on the side of the road. (You got to take the good with the bad). My breathing is still off but I know that will get better over time.
Untill next time, Happy Trails!!
