Slowed down, less miles, but on the gike again!

Some of you may remember that I've been having problems with my lungs, my Dr. diagnosed me with Bronchitis and sent me for a pulmonary function test and a chest X-Ray. Well I haven't got the results from those yet but the antibiotics my Dr. gave me along with a basic inhaler has finally kicked in and I was able to ride tonight without coughing until I vomited, hardly a cough at all even. I only rode about 8 miles in about 35 minutes, but it is a start. My legs felt good afterwords, and I now intend to ride at least a little bit every night after work.

Good work getting back on the bike! It can be hard resuming an exercise routine after an illness. I can't count the number of times I was knocked off a good routine by sickness.

I'm glad you are on the bike again. I've had a recent illness that has taken me away from exercising for the next few weeks. It's driving me crazy so I know what you are going through. Last Sunday I sat and stared at my bike most of the night, just wanting to get on it. Docs orders say no though. I'm hoping to get a ride in on Sunday.
