Last night I put on my running shoes and went for a spin (not run...) Sitting on the spinning bike was never my number 1 pastime, but last night it felt really good. I started off easy and only did 30 minutes at a moderate pace, but I kept the cadence up and the heart rate between 125 and 135, and felt really good. I felt envious this morning when Ilette and her friends got on their bikes for their weekly "house wife" outing. Maybe next Wednesday I will join them...

Waiting for the last batch of riders to finish. With the racing finished and the "touring" racers enjoying the Freedom Challenge it is a "waiting game" to see how far each group will ride every day.
Waiting for the 13th when Ilette will join me in the Cape for a couple of days. Visiting family, taking in some sights, enjoying ourselves.
Waiting for the 17th. The Freedom Challenge Finishers Dinner. Hope to see a good group of "cult foloowers".
Waiting for the 22nd July. That is when the cast comes off. If al goes well I can then start to get some normality back into my life: training, working, walking...
Waiting for 29 May 2011 - when I will again start from Beit Bridge and ride to Cape Town. Will have to do some walking training... not just riding.
In the mean time I am doing what the doc said. "Keep the weight of the foot, keep it high"
