Back in the Saddle

Well , as some of you will know , I had a heart attack just over 3 weeks ago and so had to refrain from driving and most importantly RIDING MY BIKE Shocked Shocked Shocked 

Anyway , I have been allowed to drive the car for the last week or so ( not on my own at first and not too far ) BUT ............ TODAY I WENT OUT ON MY BIKE FOR THE FIRST TIME bounce bounce bounce bounce 

Was a bit tentative at first ........... hardest part was getting the bike spun round to drive out the driveway ( I rode it down our drive the day I had the heart attack and so had to push it backwards , UPHILL , past my car then turn it around behind the car so I was pointing in the right direction Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes  ).

However , once I got going IT FELT SOOOOOOOO GOOD Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy albeit a little strange .......... funny how after just 3 short weeks , my bike felt '' different '' to how I remembered it ( can't explain it really , it just kind of felt a bit weird Exclamation Exclamation  )

Anyway , stayed out for around 45 mins just pottering about ( going getting my knee down around the nearest roundabout isn't really an option my ticker relishes just at present Laughing Laughing  )  but I can't begin to describe how much I missed and enjoyed being in the saddle again and I CAN'T WAIT to get out again soon .Cool 

On a more sombre note though , I should have been taking part in Sundays' Ride of Honour  from Squires Cafe up to Catterick Army Base ............ however , after last years 270+mile round trip , I have decided to give it a miss No No 

It's around 50 miles or so just to get to Squires from where I live and I'm afraid this old body with it's dodgy ticker ain't quite ready for that just yet so ...............

Still , a few more little excursions over the coming weeks while I'm still on the sick ( weather permitting 'cos that's something else I now have to take into consideration that I didn't before Shocked Shocked  ) and all should right with the world Very Happy
