Daycare runs would definitely put a crimp in the bike commuting fun. Iím also going to need my defibrillator replaced this month, which would likely mean a week or two off. Not as long as for the first time since thereís no new wires.

In the medium term itís all about health. Iím NOT normally-abled when it comes to my heart, the surgery was an improvement but not a cure. If I need to do more than my usual four days / 7.5 mi RT, I might start looking at an e bike. If I still canít make it work, Iíll be looking at a gym membership instead. Thatís probably a good idea anyhow... my chest is weak since the surgery.

And thatís all assuming the rest of the family is fine...
Sorry to hear you're still having heart troubles and complications from the open heart surgery. I am thankful that I recovered from mine quickly and completely. When I hear about others such as you that didn't have the same fortune it makes me feel a little guilty.
