Just another weblog

Yes yes yes yes… Please!

The glorious epic continues! With two days of uncannily beautiful weather here in the dramatically wet Pacific Northwest, I rode 6 miles in 80 degree weather yesterday and another 3.5 today! It’s amazing how much of a "mind over matter" this is for me now, especially with my doctor telling me "you just have to get over the idea that this is an issue for you anymore." That’s just about the best thing a doctor can say to you! I don’t have another check-up for two months and am encouraged to work through the pain, which I now know could be a daily part of my life for up to a year. The pain reaction is hard to overcome but with good times on my bike, it seems a lot easier already. :)

    Ahhhh…That would be me relaxing and gratefully enjoying the gift I’d been given :) SO happy for you! What wonderfully encouraging words! Thank you for sharing and enjoy this beautiful spring season!

    This was rather encouraging. I look forward to rehab, but maybe not all of the hardwork I have to put it. I have to prepare myself and get geared up for the gruel, or maybe not. This is a great opportunity to get in the kind of shape I’ve been meaning to for the last year or so.

    Fresh air and sunlight. As important a part of the recovery process as physical therapy. Glad to hear your good news.
