Addiction 2021.1

Notices
Road Cycling ďIt is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.Ē -- Ernest Hemingway

So, if I feel it coming on in the evening, for example, just go wonder around on the streets for several hours and maybe it won't get worse?
Maybe

Napped after a couple hours of spinning around the bike path and wishing I had a big serving of carnitas.

Luckily I have an appointment with the nurse next week.

Had to Google it.

First result was a cut crystal glass, then a couple Glencairn glasses, then this beauty:

Thanks for the well wishes everyone.

I am hoping after my stress test and follow up I'll be back riding without many restrictions albeit at reduced horsepower. I just hope that my new normal will still be enjoyable. I have read on BF about people who gave up riding since it was too hard to do hills and even flat riding was less fun at reduced speed.

I was told I'm on a low dose of beta blocker so that's a reason to be hopeful. I am also cutting back on calories since weight gain is common on beta blockers. I guess in a couple weeks I'll see how it goes when I get back in the saddle.

Of course I'll always have the awesome shovel. I just won't be able to use it.

So you spotted this when looking at your heart data from one of your rides?

Fake bacon is a healthy alternative.

my heart rate was over 230 for a couple minutes and wouldn't get below 100 after laying down for an hour. Then I went to the ER and was diagnosed. I had several 15-20 second heart rate spikes over the past three or four years and went to a cardiologist this summer and nothing was abnormal at that time. I guess I was a time bomb and I finally detonated on the 23rd.

it is controlled with drugs to lower the heart rate and with blood thinners to stop clots forming and causing a stroke. Ablation is a procedure that can be done if it comes to that. I'm not a doctor I'm just living with it. It is very common and in my case fairly mild. Do you want to hear about my awesome shovel?
