With the passing of the weeks the urge to take a bike and cycle outside became bigger. My kinesist wasn't against it, but she cautioned me to be careful, easy riding only. Today I decided to try my luck and take the Moots Psychlo-X outside for an easy spin. It was cold and sunny. Lovely weather for it.
I was very tense when I started out along the Naamsesteenweg towards Hamme Mille. I felt no particular pain or bother but I stayed on the small ring . Into Hamme Mille, Les Claines and then towards Nethen. I felt elated and a joy which can only be felt by someone who was apart from somthing he loved for a long time.
The legs felt great but my heartrate raced up towards 160bpm. Out of anxiety perhaps? Who cares, nothing wrong with my heart, it can take it. Into Sint Joris Weert and up the Hollestraat towards the Weertse Dreef I could measure myself against the hill. Spinning easily not to put too much pressure on the hips and lower back. All went fine and before long I was back at the Naamsesteenweg.
