I had a mixed day today(Wednesday)

I haven't gone to bed yet today, so it's still Wednesday for me! I had a mixed day today. Good news-bad news kind of thing. First the good news! I lost another 10 pounds, I weighed in and have lost a cumulative total of 171 pounds now. Now for the bad part. I had a bit of a disappointment as well, my Doctor refused to even consider letting me compete in a mountainbike race at the end of July. He insists I need a full cardio and pulmonary workup before I can do this and I'm not ready for it yet. Frustrating, but it's probably sensible! I'm only a couple of months out of the wheelchair after all! He did encourage me to continue training for racing though as long as I don't compete yet. I tend to forget, no matter how much better I feel, I'm not out of the woods yet. I'll at least be there and watch though, even if I am not allowed to compete yet! It'll give me a chance to see what goes on at a mountainbike event at least! This is not to mention it's a great excuse to go camping as well! Oh well, next year, and I'll be in a realistic position to compete and WIN then! Well, good night for now, see ya later!

All of us at times have mixed days.The fact that you understand the reason for the Doctor's saying not yet is only for the best. He does want you to succeed fully. Just do not push yourself beyond your abilities at this time. I know you will do great when the time is right. I have it on very good authority. A friend always.

Hey Buddy,
I was psyched up to try to race this year. An injury in Feb. made that a no-go.
You can always volunteer for the races. That thought made me feel alot better about not being in it.

That way your still part of the action.
