My First Cycle Out After My Heart Attack
Our Aimee loves cycling anyway, and she wasn't at work today, so she didn't mind in the least keeping me company for my first post heart attack ride.
I planned for a 30 minute run out at the most, taking it steady and avoiding any steep hills. We took a mostly off road route through country lanes, into, and around, our local Woodlands Burial Ground.
It was sheer joy being on the trike again. I could have ridden for many more miles. I certainly had the energy and strength. But sadly Aimee had a hair appointment that we needed to get back for.
I suppose for my first time out after the attack and the surgery 40 minutes were enough, although I can honestly say that the ride didn't tire me one whit.
Hoping to get out again for another ride tomorrow.
