PUSHING ON

Waterfalls finished, pool played and it seems I’m still in there with a chance, now back to some cycling which has been this year’s big regret thanks to 4 months of lousy weather at the beginning of the year and then the less than pleasant discovery of Stage 4 Colon Cancer to kick off June!!

Sadly not much got achieved but now dogged determination has set in and miles WILL be knocked of the 24,902 target of “Once round the World. Before the big “C” arrived I had determined that 3000 would be my limit this year having lost the first 4 months to weather, and it was still snowing on the last day of school 5/23/19

A more realistic target would now seem to be 2000 for 2019 and this will require a lot of effort with the monthly two sessions of Chemo when I’m sidelined and definitely NOT in the mood. No matter back in the saddle today and another 22.24 comes off the total and I’m determined to crack the first 1000 this week.

Monday and another 10.29 goes in the bag between other missions and tasks. Tuesday, I want to go for some more but I’m very cold thanks to the Chemo shit along with the pins and needles and runny nose! What fun!!!! Eventually get out there once I’ve warmed up and hit another 18.22 which brings me ever closer to the first banner at 1000 miles!

Wednesday and cool this morning but with no wind to speak of. Pins and needles in the finger tips ( another ongoing chemo crap side effect, but it has to be said the same effect in the lips is not showing up so must be grateful for small mercies). Should be able to get out there soon and bang in a few more. Got out, got er’ dun! Another 15.31 in the books bringing the dismal total to 1007.35 which is about 2500 less than last year.

 

The month finishes up on 1034.18 as its windy again and much cooler in the mornings which the chemo doesn’t like. Oh well, another session on Wednesday which will be No 7 .
