I had a minor heart attack!

Amral, was she blonde or brunette?

when the weeds are absent from around the garden it is kind of difficult to tell. But she is Italian.

Careful now, she could send you to ER. I heard them Italian don't stop until they come. You got your work cut out for you. 

Riff, I believe I wrote  about this before. What you had is called a mini stroke or TIA...Transient Ischemic Attack . I know this stuff well and just completed a memory research project with the University of British Columbia.  Plus they paid for each session of research material and it also helped me  medically to remember things...What's you name again ?

Seriously, this is a WARNING that a major stroke can occur, unless you pay close attention to your health, with diet and exercise. Be very careful with your health, because similar to losing our vision, a disabling stroke can leave us dependent on others for everything, like Mara and friends I spoke about recently, including Ron Seepersaud whose funeral was yesterday in Toronto.

My breakfast is varied with cereals  and fruits, but consists mainly of three boiled egg whites, [I give the yokes to the birds], avocado and cherry tomatoes, with two rye toast and Clamato juice. Sometimes a 3-egg omelet with some of all the veggys in the fridge. With Grace pepper to spice it up.

Lunch  is usually turkey sandwich with veggys on the side.

Supper is curry chicken without the skin, or mushroom soup, with some of all the veggys in the fridge and a Tandoor Naan  on the side.

I attend senior aerobics classes three times  weekly when I am not out of town.  But I am still undecided whether I go to aerobics for  exercise, or to watch the senior women sweating in tights.    Because that is also a healthy energy that gets my spirits up.

thanks

Hope you feel better a year later. We are all getting too old to do what we usually do with the same fervor I was doing some downhilling on a technical trail a few months back and my fork broke after a jump and the bike handle bar went into my stomach resulting in an umbilical hernia. That generated in lots of tests with my blood pressure deemed too high in the process  so I am on a low sodium and minimum carb diet. For a vegetarian that is not too nice. Not much to eat.

I am better a year later...not where I want to be, but the numbers look fine...just need to watch the diabetes

keep the belly fat down. We can still link up on a fitness app and workout together. I am up at 5 and I take a 3 mile walk. You can do it with me if you care. I walk about a 17 to 20 min like pace. Let me know

Glad to hear you are doing better. Keep pushing Riff, I know it is   easy to say but at our age it is not easy to change meals, start exercising and keep away from the Coronas but with determination and a strong will to stay healthy, you will find the courage. Just keep pushing.  I started doing about 30 minutes stationary Biking for the past 20 months and my Glucose count is going down, also my cholesterol # are going down. Best of luck. You can do it Bro.

Mapmyride. It is a good app that works on android and Iphone and can sync with fitbit among others. It gives a calorie count, a speed count, distant count, heart monitor ( good especially if you do strenuous things like mountain biking and need to be warned if in the red zone) etc. It works with biking, running walking.  It can track your friends and do collaborative events ie a race, or a distance target etc. Also tells how high you climb when walking running or biking.

Sorry about your injury D2. Hope you are getting better.

Had laparoscopic surgery at a private outpatient clinic.  Surgery time under 40 mins and I went home the same day.  Feel 100 percent but warned to take it easy first six months. Did not even know what happened. One day I was looking in the mirror and I had a "bung navel" when all my life I had a nice "innie".

Banning and suspending is not good for the heart ,it contaminates the heart.

De man frighten to leave RH.

D2, I wish I could but where will I go riding, Liberty Ave? Those young people driving like they in Donkey Carts.

There are lots of trails, really good ones close by where you can bike on weekends or evenings in the summer. Forest Park trail has a 3 mile loop and it is good training if you can do it twice once a week and wait for the really funky rides on the weekends. Too many trails for single track mountainbikers close to RH. You can select from the easy to extreme at will. You however need to hook up with a group. You like girls so go on meet up and join one of those that has lots of chicks that is close by. Biker girls are hot...and straight up hard bodies

Nehru posted:

Wow, thank you Bhai and this is great since I can improve my health and get laid at the same time.;)

Seriously, on any day you will get someone to ride with. On weekends you will get a whole posse. I do not doubt you will get laid all the time if that is your aim because there are lots of folks out there available for that. However, I am about riding my bike.

Nehru posted:

Seriously, I thank you for the Info. I am going to seriously look into it.

Mountain biking is serious so you have to approach with caution. It also needs some investment up front.  You will need a good full suspension bike and other gear; clothing,  shoes  helmet, hydration pack, repair kit etc.  It would also be good if you have someone to teach you some safety tips and biking essentials. However, the rewards for you besides good health and a hard body  will be  a connection to nature as you have never seen it ...and of course lots of hot girls and something to do on a regular basis. 

I got into some serious cycling on Sat which had me quite pumped. With speeds of 40 + mph around the velodrome crowds cheering you on, you just can't ask for better. Checking out the female cyclists (and males for some) is a must. 

I was at it for about two hours straight when I decided to change the sports channel.

Keep it up my friend. Healthy diet is even more important than exercise.  But the combo of the two is good.  Just keep at it. Just don’t over exert.

Just finished watching Paris Nice.. all the monument races and  one day cobbled classics are coming up this month before the Grand Tours...bike -race-watching heaven between now and September.

After this week the weather should be hot here. I have to get back on my bike after the winter. The last time I was out riding was just around my birthday in November and then I just got busy with everything else. I have about 10 pounds that I'd love to shed. The treadmill shall be my friend for the next few weeks and then into the pool to cool off. I'll never be a middleweight like some of you guys but I have to strive to be around the heavyweight limit.

i never stop. I ride all through the winter as long there is not too much snow. I was on the trail  earlier and it is muddy as hell so wore a full face helmet and googles.  I saw this fellow coming up the hill completely covered in mud and grinning from ear to ear. He had to be close to 80 but built like wound up wire ropes. I hope I can be riding at his age.

My 70+ professor/scientist/author boss rode home after getting dr.'s orders. He was from Beverly Hills and we were worried he'd be attacked by thieves.

Oye Nehru, Long Island has a lot of bike trails. I did a 26 mile one a few years back. I was in the best shape of my life when I used to bike around the lake at Flushing Meadow on the weekends.

He is talking about single tracking off road. Here are some guys practicing their beginners skills at the track I ride most often at since it is close to me.

There are five trails with different color values that provide difficulty information. Red is most difficult but because few people ride there the weeds grow and they cut u up. I dont ride it except in late fall.
