Unlike yesterday, today was neither warm or sunny but Caro convinced me to go out cycling. We were absolutely soaked through by the time we got home.

I thought summer had finished but outside is beautiful. Yesterday Jon finished rebuilding my MTB - changing to a folding frame (see ) - so today was the perfect day to test it.

It is ten weeks since the last time I was on my MTB and todays trip in no way compared with the 2000 meters of climbing through the Uina Valley ( ) but it reminded me why I love mountain biking. You can go anywhere. You are unstoppable :-)

Today I was hard at work and my colleague (who works part time) sent me a photo of her out cycling. Luckily after work it was still sunny so I went out and took a picture to send to her :-)

I was meant to be spinning this evening but I was the only person on the list so they cancelled it. The sun was shining so instead I went cycling.

171010 Spinning
It is dark again in the evenings so it is time for spinning. First session was yesterday and I could still walk today so I went again.

I achieve an average of about 130W over the whole hour. Hopefully that will improve over the winter.

I started spinning just as a "winter training" for biking but now I enjoy it just as a sport for its own sake. Good music, good trainers and a nice warm shower afterwards. Then I sleep no problem :-)

My shoulder didn't hurt at all after Saturdays bike ride so I went out and did it again this evening. I was even slower this time but still managed above 20km/h.

170923 back on the bike
They (the doctors and therapist) told me that after six weeks my shoulder would be fully healed and I could start "training it up". So (six weeks and one day after the operation) I was just out for a roadbike ride. Very slowly and very gently and not too far but none the less a bike ride.

As the picture shows autumn is happening.

Life is getting better every day.

18.6km with an amazing 200 meters of climbing!

170917 "weight lifting"
My shoulder OP is now five weeks ago so I am allowed to start "training". After four weeks I was using a half filled bottle of water (500g) and pulling it in various directions via a rope over the door handle. Now I have moved up to a whole 1000g!

I bet all the ladies in the fitness studio would be very impressed by this.

Got the hang of this "hiking" thing. Just walk with interesting people and then you don't notice how boring it is :-)

Gertrud and Jon kept me amused during a 70 minute walk today.

6.5KM and we achieved 5.5km/h. Not so bad.

Can't MTB. Can't road bike. :-(
So have to walk :-(

This morning I walked to Haslach and back "just for the exercise"

and this afternoon to the Schlossbergalm with Christine for a good long chat.

A total of 12.7km.

170825 Bayerstetten
From today (2 weeks after the OP) I no longer ned to wear my "mobile shelf" so I went for a walk to Bayerstetten and back. Gentle and slow but my shoulder isn't hurting so we are getting there.

I am also doing a set of exercises six times a day to stop my shoulder siezing up.

170815 Gschwend
Still walking around with my shoulder on a "mobile shelf" round my neck so no big adventures planned today. I have to wear this thing for another 10 days. Great!

But I managed a monster tour all the way to Gschwend and back. 4.5km. Had to stop and rest at Chris' and then for a coffee at Strömer's in Brand. I can't believe that only 10 days ago I did the Uina tour.

[next day] did the same walk again. Much quicker and less out of breath. Must be getting fit.

The smallest tour this year. 1.5km with 35 meters of climbing. On Friday I had a small operation on my shoulder. Sunday lunchtime they took the last tubes out so I went for a walk up the neighbouring hillock in the sun. I think I took about an hour :-)

Tuesday evening but just Heidi and I.
Cycled up towards Haslacheralp in the drizzle and then turned left to Bayerstetten Kopf. Back down to Bayerstetten where it started chucking it down. It was like having buckets of water tipped over you. In the five minutes it took to get home, we were soaked through.
