>Start Me Up

>Well another week over, another sick note from my GP! This time for another two weeks. However, its not all negative- quite the contrary.

I’ve been to see the physiotherapist again and after some treatment, my knee is feeling better and I can see the green shoots of recovery. (Hopefully more real than the green shoots of recovery that politicians keep seeing for the economy). I have 2 more sessions of physio over the next two weeks to undertake. The physio thinks gentle riding on my bike on the turbo trainer will be good for me – I like this physio’s advice.

I got the disc of my MRI scan today from my GP to give to the physio, so I did what most people would do and loaded it onto my laptop to view the scan results. Why I did that, I have no idea as I have no idea what I was looking at or what it should look like.

I’m hoping that February may see me back at work again.

As part of my positive thinking, I have already started looking ahead to a potential re visit of LEJoG this summer. I had preliminary chats over the last two nights with some of those who are interested in doing the same. Come on now Drew, Greg, Joe (& potentially David), get your minds on the task in hand and get started on the necessary training for this ride. Hopefully it will take place at the end of July/ early August.

The preliminary discussions are for our doing it in 14 days or less. It will probably be mostly unsupported, This will make it harder than last year as I will have to be carrying all my own luggage all the way.

The idea is to use the same route as I used in 2009, subject to a few tweaks.

Its nice to be able to look positively at things and see the chance to plan for some riding. This positive attitude seems to have coincided with the snow going- is there a connection?

What else has been happening?

Well, I finally got round to buying myself a laptop and setting up a wireless network at home. Great, it means I can surf the net on the nettie now! What it really means is that I can surf the net downstairs whilst watching the TV, and trying to update my facebook profile.

I’ve also spent a couple of days trying to sort out my credit file. It appears that a certain Credit Reference Agency whom I can’t name for legal reasons, but for simplicity lets call them Equifax, have recorded that I have numerous credit cards that do not still exist and in some cases have never existed. This has an adverse effect on my credit rating and needs resolving.

The prospect of getting back on my bike and doing LEJoG and the Police Unity Tour ride has me thinking its time to lose some weight. So the diet starts on Monday.

My New Years resolutions remain on course. I’m not saying what they are, but I’m on course to keep them at present.

About spen666

I'm a 50 something football fan and occasional cyclist. I've been a football fanatic most of my life and have completed the 92 football league & premier league grounds previously. I have 1 left to rejoin the 92 club. Added to this numerous non league grounds, a number abroad and you start to get the picture. I took up cycling in around 2000. Although my father was a former World Vets Champion, I got into cycling accompanying my son to ride in London. This was followed by my commuting to work each day into Central London. Then doing some Sunday rides, then some audax events (www.audax.uk.net) and then a week's cycling holiday in France with a friend. From there, I got more and more into cycling and in 2009 completed LEJoG and in 2010 rode in the USA with the Police Unity Tour. I completed blogs for those events at www.aminearlythere.blogspot.com and www.bothesidesofthepond.blogspot.com Feel free to read them and learn more about me. I now am one of the organising committee for the UK Police Unity Tour (www.ukpoliceunitytour.org ) I live alone which suits me as it gives me time at weekends to pursue my interests of cycling and football. (Well what did you expect me to say? That I'm sad at being single?) I'm currently looking for my next challenge. Any suggestions gratefully received.
