Thanks for the thoughts, folks. I tried a short town ride today and it wasnít exactly the most comfortable. Didnít have a ton of energy and felt sort of goofy on the bike. My follow up appointment is scheduled, so hopefully they can draw blood and give me some answers.

Cloudy, overcast this morning, with rain again this afternoon and evening.
I was supposed to ride with a friend on a MUP , but didnít want to chance the rain .
Someday , I hope to get in my birthday ride of 70 kilometers, but itíll be an all day event and I need good weather on a day I and my friend are free . Been trying for over a month and a half. Maybe this fall

Went to the doctor and they drew blood. Waiting on labs...and I have an MRI scheduled for a week and a half from now. In the meantime he said he had no objection to me riding as long as I didn't feel any balance issues (basically, listen to my body). Yesterday was a good day. Today is so-so, so I haven't ridden. His goal is - as long as nothing is found in the MRI - to have me moving well enough to handle the Ohio To Erie tour I have scheduled next month.

Too hot to ride right after my visit with the cardiologist and had lunch with the better half .
I took a chance and waited until the evening . Overcast , very humid . It feels like they moved New Orleans up here . .

Doc made me an appointment for next Friday to attempt to shock my heart back into rhythm. He thinks I have a 90% chance on it working . Sounded like good odds to me . If it works , I’ll be able to get off the blood thinner and not worry as much about a crash on my bike taking me out . 😱

Iíve been adding in a 30 minute brisk walk before my ride in the morning.
This morning I did 1.5 miles in 30 minutes. Drank a little water during a five minute rest and them off on the Schwinn Crisscross.
With the walk, Iím starting to drop a little weight again.
