Hey Guys, so another week is upon us again. Where is the time going?
I have disappointing news today; no cycling has been done since we last spoke! There is a good reason for this though…
You may remember that last week I mentioned being unwell, feeling lethargic and not having much drive to get out and about on my old reliable – Claud. Well, the illness I had escalated and unfortunately the day after my post was made I was admitted to hospital through A&E; spending a couple of days on the wards. I had viral gastroenteritis and secondary DKA so I guess that pretty much sums up why I didn’t feel any enthusiasm to cycle last week and why I haven’t yet started again this week! I am still at home; recovering slowly – much slower than I anticipated – and I hope to try a cycle in the next couple of days as well as return to work!

I am still incredibly drained despite being at home resting and look forward to feeling 100% again and returning to my hobbies. Although I haven’t managed to ride I have had a couple of short walks in and around my local area and the riverbank. Here are a few shots I captured yesterday:
If you would like to read more on my experience with DKA (diabetic ketoacidosis) and the hospital care I received please see here.
Hopefully next week I can blog about my, sure to be STRUGGLE, on regaining strength and endurance with my cycling, see you next time and don’t forget to drop in for the usual Wordless Wednesday! Here is last week’s post.

P.S. Considering the 100 euro-millionaires drawn in the UK last Friday my Mum said a very beautiful thing – “If you have your health, you have everything. That is winning the lottery.” It is true, isn’t it?
Wishing you all health and happiness, until next time 🙂
