Not riding tomorrow because I'm taking my year 1 and year 5 children to the first day of school for the year. Year 5er will still ride while I take his very heavy bag in the car - he has a new bike so is dying to ride to school as usual. I'm hoping I'll still get in my 2 commutes this week -it's forecast showers for some of the week so we shall see.

Last 5 weeks without any commuting. Or riding for that matter :(

Had some hardware removed from shoulder and my bicep tendon moved and it needs time to heal.

Slowly going insane from not riding to work.

Could time on a stationary trainer in upright position be a sanity saver ?

Well it does explain Norbs :mrgreen:

I had to drop my wife off this morning, so no commuting for me - I think that makes it twice this year that I have missed a day.

Does this count? My office is over there somewhere. Smoke from fires burning in Indonesia is drifting across Singapore. The PSI reached 150 overnight, in the middle of the "Unhealthy" range. The bus is air-conditioned and the government says avoid strenuous exercise...

Finally getting over a chest infection with significant cough. Last week at home, mon, tues at home. Cough still lingering and has caused a significant injury to lower rib cage. Strong pain killers prescribed, imbibed and I'm not riding to work coz I'm off with the fairies for the first hour or so after taking the meds.

Sucks to see my year target drop behind this morning.

OK, it may have been borderline with a PSI of 150. Tonight it is 290. 300+ is considered hazardous. I'm sitting this one out. :cry:

Still can't make it around the house without running out of puff, pneumonia sucks the breath out of you. One day I might get back to work, then I can start working on cycle commuting again.

maybe we should issue a decree for you - no cycling til the doctor says its ok. pneumonia can send you downhill fast.

Not if the climb outta the valley is gonna kill you.

BTDT re pneumonia. Life was sucky for way too long when even a short ride has you wheezing. :(
