Quote from: Slim on September 19, 2022, 09:32:33 PMSeptember had already turned into a sort of damage limitation exercise by the time I came down with COVID a week ago, but this bank holiday weekend was at least an opportunity to clock up 100 miles or so. Wasn't it? Nope, a suspected kidney stone kept me out of action on the Saturday and Sunday.But I appear to be back to my normal self mostly today - whether the kidney stone has passed, just moved somewhere more comfortable or never actually existed I am yet to find out, but I decided I would attempt 25 miles or so this afternoon. The worry was that the pain would flare up again and I'd be incapacitated, an inconvenient distance from home. But a shortish Twycrosser seemed an acceptable risk.Very light rain when I set off and it only got worse, at least for an hour. Then it stopped for an hour. Then it came back. I pressed on regardless, driven mainly by bloody-mindedness. I listened to coverage of the latter stages of the Queen's funeral, the Windsor instalment.It was eerily quiet out there.Bit cold later on, even when it wasn't raining. Not the most enjoyable ride, but glad to have got out on a bike again, for only the third time this month.26.45 miles.https://www.strava.com/activities/7834155260
