I was in the ER a week ago Friday, again the following Monday morning, and now have a catheter with a bag strapped to my leg to allow the bladder to empty. At times, the pain was excruciating. I am now on a stronger antibiotic for 21 days, and limiting my diet, and have had much relief over the past few days, but my bodily functions are not working normally. I cannot get in to see a urologist until 4/6, so, at this point do not know when I will be able to ride again.

I was getting pretty antsy to do something yesterday, and may try doing a couple of easy things today, but, reality is, I cannot do all that much before starting to become uncomfortable. I surely do not want to make anything worse.

After my prostate removal (to a toxic waste dump!) I was catheterized for a week, well eight days due to Labor Day. Let me offer full sympathy as it was an absolutely excruciating week. Best wishes for a full recovery.

22.1 and about 700 feet. Nice day was able to leave the booties home and the toes made it home. Another good kind of loop. Lots of water views from up high and along the shore.

I don't know if you got you wish but you spread it here.

Yesterday, 20 mile loop and about 800 feet of gain, with about the last third through showers. Odd - oh crap, rain, Oh, look dry pavement, oh, 4 blocks later very wet pavement. On and off. Fire hose, , no rain.....

25.7 and happy the Great Sandway was closed to cars.

Hopefully this weekend I can get this number back over 400 and keep it there.

It was an excellent day weather and route wise. I was over-dressed. Completed the full loop unhampered by rain. Although, now they are forecasting highs not even hitting 50F in the next few days.I hate going backwards in terms of weather and temps!

24 miles and about 1,200 feet.

Slowed down a bit at the end, some wandering around and traffic.

Digger Goreman 04-08-22 05:20 PM

40 miles 😁

Chocolate and cheese run to nearest bikeable Trader Joe's.

About 23 miles on a somewhat hilly route and a windy day. Working on strength, so about 90% in 42/14 gear, with a few bits in 42/16 gear. Out of the saddle often and about one third of the ride. Such beautiful weather… sunny and upper 50s F.

? Fffffffffff? Have a cat or fall asleep?

ofajen 04-10-22 02:42 PM

17 mile out and back. Out against a 22 mph headwind, but it was 85 degrees F this afternoon. Two days ago we had a freeze and very light snow in the early morning!

looks like a fun route. didn't see anything too insane but that constant climbing/descending add up pretty quick on the el "gainometer" in that area.

Impressive climbing total and 6x golden ratio, nice work!

joesch 04-11-22 06:47 AM

I dont do much climbing in the DFW area but recently with the weeks of 20+ mph winds, my legs have been extra sore every day.
Also the wind effects are especially challenging when hitting from sides and also forces me to stay low when off the saddle which is not my normal stomping style. Air quality and airborne debris also take an effect on lungs and eyes. Would much rather be climbing some real hills :) My 200 mile week goals have taken a hit :(

Keeping the grades reasonable for this 210 lbs rider is essential if I want to do more miles without tendonitis developing in my knees.
There are several grades in the area that reach 15-20+% ramps that are better suited for shorter rides at least for me.
