Happy New Year

Hi all.  Just wanted to wish everyone a happy New Year and all the best for 2012.

I guess it's also that time to do a monthly roundup, but I'm too scared - I've done practically nothing this month; life and ill health have just got in the way.

Eek! Do I have to? *sighs and wanders of to look at ride log*

Oh no, I knew it was bad.... but its worse than I expected.... Decembers grand total comes... drumroll please....

51.5miles. *Hangs head in shame*

Looking on the bright side things can only get better right? This damn infection that started at the beginning of the month surely will go soon.  Not content with making me have a week off the bike when I had the initial full blown cold, it then manifested itself into a nasty sore throat and cough, which has made breathing difficult to say the least. For the first time in a long time I am finding myself breathless at the top of the stairs. :-(

Anyway, today is the start of a New Year. If this year had been more successful I would have increased my target again but as things stand (and still not up to full health) I will make the sensible choice of leaving things as they are.

One thing all this ill health does show is just how much the cycling was keeping my asthma at bay. No sooner as I slowed down my body started to struggle with its fight against all those pesky germs I meet on a daily basis.

Ah well, with the New Year comes new hope (and at least I managed a more than I did last year - just) ;-)

A very happy 2012 to you as well,my friend! :)

I feel your pain with the infection...normally twice per year I get the same exact headcold like clock-work,Spring and Fall. I thought I'd gotten lucky and skipped it in the Fall,but it hit fast and hard (was fine in the AM,sick-as-a-dog by evening that first day) last week,and I've been down ever since...and we had nice 50's weather all last week-ARGH! :P

I'm currently in what's normally it's final stages,the cough and hack for a week,sigh. Hoping to get out and ride soon,myself. You'll get it back up there,my friend,just be patient and don't rush your health,trust me :)

May 2012 bring you many miles and smiles,and surpass all of 2011 for everything good that happened,and not be half as bad :)
