Not to mention increasingly expensive and invasive. The takehome message I got from my PCP was basically that there are a lot of things I COULD do, but mostly not worth bothering. She confirmed I have a heart murmur. Then again, in the monthly Siblings Zoom Call with the 5 other Smith Kids, I learned that Dad had a heart murmur, too. Didn't seem to bother him during his 100 3/4 years.

Most of the fruit I consume is the liquid, fermented variety.

That's how I get some of my grain. Sometimes, distilled after fermentation.

She said she saw no reason to be concerned, get an echo cardiogram, keep exercising, etc. Pretty much what I expected, but of course I'd worried that she'd listen to my heart, or look at the EKG, and say, "Holy crap!". An irrational fear, to be sure.

So I rode hard on Zwift last night to celebrate.

I saw 2 doctors about it in 2017 and I got the "you look good for your age" and "you are 64, after all". Symptoms resolved before I ever saw a cardiologist because the insurance denied the referral the first time around. Those symptoms returned last July but I still haven't seen a doctor. Seems to be a lot better than it was last year.

Naturally.

I did another club ride today. About 20 started on the medium (65 miles) route but we split early when the first hills came. I was feeling weak so I was between groups for a while but when they stopped to wait for everyone to get back on, I took off by myself and felt a lot better after riding at my own pace for a while. They gave up on the second group so the rest of us stayed together until the end.

It was a beautiful day. High of about 65, clouds moving around, and a little wind. The hills are so green right now and there are tons of mustard flowers. I wish I had some pics.

This is what they look like.

Racing on dirt is nonsense. I need more practice on that crap.

My sinuses are killing me which also means my teeth are killing me, too. Been going on awhile. Getting tiresome.

There are actually some really nice parts of Jersey. Two of my bear sightings while riding have been there. Iíve seen the same number in Montana.
