I'm currently in my third week of not commuting in fact I haven't been on the bike at all. Long story short I had a physical with a new doctor who after doing an exam and getting a family history suspects I have Marfan's syndrome. I've been to three doctors in three weeks and none of them has been able to say conclusively if I have this thing or not but they've all advised me to lay off the exercise until they know for sure. My father died of a heart attack when he was 42, his mother when she was 38, and now that I've learned a little bit about Marfan's syndrome I see why the doctors suspect I have it.
But god do I miss riding to work. Even taking my motorcycle, which is better than a car, is still miles below the feeling I got climbing that last hill before the office.
very cranky from not riding.
