Feeling much better.

Haven’t written anything for over a week as I’ve had bugger all to report on, unless its watching Fern and Philip ( yes, I know its sad, but it was on and I couldn’t be bothered getting up to change the channel ).

I’m feeling much better, my breathing is fine and my peak flow results are consistently between 650 and 720 ( which is good, considering they’d dropped to 300 ). I’ve listened to everyones good advice and intentions and none nothing at all, no biking, running etc…. I felt good yesterday so managed a walk around the park, and purposely included the hills and I felt fine. My only problem this week has been a pulled muscle in my back, did it on sunday when I swept some leaves up in the yard – hurt like hell for a few days, and I couldn’t straighten up properly but after walking and doing some stretching yesterday it feels much better !

So there you go, haven’t been up to much at all except reading ( recommend Jane Tomlinsons new book ” you can’t take it with you” – about ironman and cycling across America ), surfing the net, planning New York honeymoon jaunts, watching DVD’s, and annoying the cat.

Hopefully get back running on Saturday with a very gentle plod along Crosby beach, couple of bike rides and a swim in the week and then hopefully be in one piece to very gently drag myself ound the 130km of the White Rose Classic ( decided to give the full 180km a miss after recent events ). At the hospital on the 11th June for full function tests on my lungs and then I’ve got two weeks of getting in half decent shape for Chester. I’m sure the amount of fitness I’ve lost will see me struggling there especially in the swimming ( have to mentally get over that, but actually scared of going swimming now ! ).

Anyways enough waffling, I’ve got to go put the washing out and do some ironing – thats the closest I am at the moment to being an ironman !!
