The Long Road to Recovery?

The Long Road

The Long Road

I can take it no more! It’s been 2 months since my 2nd ‘cardiac incident’ of the year and I’ve been doing well with ‘taking it easy’. I still have some discomfort in my chest and back and I’m hoping to see the doctor on Tuesday. However, it’s blowing a hoolie outside and a nice day is forecast for tomorrow so I just can’t resist a windsurf session today and a mountain bike ride tomorrow.

Lets hope its the start of a long road to recovery (or preferably a short road).

The photo by the way is one I took whilst on a windsurf trip to the Sinai Peninsula in Egypt a few years ago.

    Saw the doc yesterday and apparently all is OK with my heart, so that’s promising. They still don’t know what is causing the pain in my chest / back so are doing some more blood tests (tomorrow). However, I’ve been given the all clear to get back into action.

    Time to start re-gaining some fitness and getting out on the bike. I did (most of) the Dragonsback trail at Coed y Brenin on Sunday, but after 2 months off it felt like pretty hard work by the end!

    Al.
