This weekend has been somewhat dampened by a head lurgy – with that comes a few hours of sitting doing not much and having time for introspection – nothing earthshattering – but the number 2 came up a lot – as did the challenges of keeping fit while ageing.
So why 2?
Well it is now only two weeks until I will be able to get back on my bike (yippeee) and it is two weeks post Op!
It is two months since I was able to ride my bike off-road in earnest, and
That when I will be able to ride my bike again it will be two years from when I went for my first post redundancy ride (a gap in a very cold cold windy Febrauary) where I was so excited that I got ½ a mile down the road and headbutted the tarmac hard – thankfully my helmet did its job otherwise I am sure I would not be here – it took a long time to feel normal again – and this is a reminder to myself to be careful this time round.
