I got on my bike last week, true!  I did a 35 minute ride on Saturday afternoon and boy didn't my body know about it!  3+ years ago it would have been bugger all distance but this time it was HUGE!  I did 11.3 km's in that time and afterwards I had a 20 minute nap.  I then went to a BBQ for dinner and ended up going home at 9pm due to being exhausted!  It was the kind of exhaustion I would have previously felt from a 4-5hr ride.  Oh well I am extremely unfit so it's not really a surprise but it's a start!

This week I've managed to not call in sick at work during that time of the month.  It truly is amazing that I've been able to get through with nurofen+ although there was a few moments today when I really wasn't in a good space but I had work to do and needed to be in the office.  It's good to know that when U have something to focus on I can get through it which is nice.  I will be having another scan soon and speaking the specialist to see if I need surgery or not - time will tell.

Two weeks ago I did a weekend course for my level 2/state level qualification for being a Commissaire - I've submitted my work book and I sure hope I pass - I really enjoy Commissairing and everything that goes with it.  Although on Saturday having to DQ someone and call and ambulance and issue a warning wasn't so great.

I don't know how I ended up on your blog but I read it anyways :) I just started back up on my bike after 3 years of not riding. My butt is sore and I feel like I ran a marathon. I'm thinking we felt about the same lol.

Good stuff Mamodos! It sure takes it out of you but with doing it regularly it helps and you get back into it quick enough (I hope!!)
