    Some more miles. I have been hitting longer higher mileage rides this month, just to keep my sanity with my son's health problems putting my life on total hold.

    The next phase for my son is beginning next week. First up, his 2D echo was negative for a heart murmur. He had one when he was a baby, but out grew that. Second: they were able to eliminate Marfans Syndrome, underlying emphysema/COPD. So there is the issue with a 40% loss of lung function on the right upper area. It is a pulmonary bollei, can be fixed surgically and he should regain 100% use of the right lung. So we should know next week when surgery will be scheduled. So as soon as I know, I can make plans for next months mileage.

    There are some great places to ride in Bend, but wintery weather is starting so I may miss my goal next month due to taking care of my son post surgery. Or hit the chicken switch and declare small miles for November.

    10/28 - 03.0 miles walking

    Total: 248.0 miles

    10/29 - 14.0 miles cycling

    Yikes, am I sore. Not only am I feeling it from my race in the lower body but I have been running a Halloween Obstacle course for my kiddos all week. Vampire push ups, tombstone curl ups, traversing wall haunted cliffs, hanging or climbing across a suspended beam upside down, and pulling myself along a bull rope hand over hand through the swamp creature swamp, army crawling through a werewolf den has just whooped the snuff out of my upper body. I need to soak in a hot sauna. May head to the gym tomorrow just to use one for a hour.
    Oct. 29: 10.25 miles circuit training, walking and stationary cycling

    @anaconda469: So glad to hear they are finding out what is going on with your son and he will have return lung function. My hubby and I just spent a year trying to find out what was wrong with him. He pretty much sounded like he was hacking up a lung. A pulmonary specialist and cardiologist ran him through the paces and the pulmonary specialist found chronic bronchitis, mild emphysema caused by Alpha 1 which is the lack of a protein that attaches to bacteria in the lungs. There are about 100,000 cases in the US. My hubby is ZZ which is double rare. He is now on week four tomorrow of a lifetime of weekly infusions of the protein from plasma. No cure, just slowing it down. He could end up with a lung transplant down the road. So I know what you must be going through. I continue to keep both of you in prayer.

    Not sure on mileage this month, so let's go for 750

    01-10: 36.04 miles
    02-10: 100.4 miles
    04-10: 63.12 miles
    07-10: 22.77 miles
    08-10: 100.11 miles
    11-10: 61.60 miles
    14-10: 60.79 miles
    17-10: 60.17 miles - 13 yo son's first club ride


    Been missing in action again! Too much work has kept me off the bike so only have 2 more rides to add in later. Currently recovering, again, after being slung-shot off the bike whilst going over a level crossing yesterday. First time over this one and the road isn't 90 degrees to the rails. Tried to correct angle as slipped over first set to over compensate before slipping on 2 set and to land hard on third set of rails. Thankfully I was able to tyre suck for an hour on the 17.5 mile ride home, mainly running on adrenaline. Shoulder is rather buggered but a trip to A&E confirmed nothing broken, which was surprising, and the legs have the usual road rash (still wearing shorts) which looks impressive but isn't causing much discomfort.

    Going to be an interesting day as going to see a man about a job lorry driving - need to get a lift there and won't be able to shake hands - how rude!

    Oh, the bike is OK, just need to loosen off the shifter to put it back where it should be
