I rode my trek carbon yesterday in that 22 mile wind..an when there was a cross wind..felt like front tire wanted to go one way..an back tire another..zig zagging down the road is what it felt like

"The biggest competition is myself".. I agree 100% Mike ..I'm journaling all of my journey to feeling better... researching and trying to improve myself... Im learning about becoming disciplined. yes Mike, competing constantly with the old me..the easier way of life me... the unchallenged me... My plan is to reshape the new me..not just the body... but my mind...it is the largest hurtle for me... this mind of mine... competition with my mind and to change my way of thinking will be a huge challenge... but again, its my challenge and who knows me better than me...I got this... and if I don't I have the support of my friends on FS. Thank you my mentor..you get the ball a rolling and my mind to expand in thought to a better way of life for me.

Patty, Picture me with my first cup of coffee..relaxed out on the patio slowly getting my heart rate up.Then l come across Wannab's blog how he's racing up and down and all around through hill and dill dodging car's and peddling fast from charging dogs fighting the wind to keep up his speed..and all before breakfast do see what l mean. hahaha p.s. like I've said before he's a better man than me with that get up and go.

Sounds like a great set of rides! I’m out on my walk to the doctor to get the cushioning ground cartilage injected in my knee again. Sounds like the other knee gets it as well. LOL 🤷🏻‍♀️Can’t seem to walk even a mile without that knee complaining heavily so I look forward to the break. We have low temperatures with sleet and snow today so it’s a cold one! Stay warm!🙋🏻‍♀️

smprowett, l feel for you l went through the same aggravation with both hips and knees and all these shots,it got to pt.where it never gave me any relief,finally the VA changed them out and I'm restricted from running the 600 yard dash and l walk like John Wayne hahaha but aleast all that pain is gone.l feel your pain.
