Life's not so different at the moment: hours exploring the countryside combined with coffee and cake. The only difference is we've swapped our bikes for hikes. The No Car Cafe is a little hidden gem and the perfect stop for hikers and bikers out in the Peak District

Three weeks post-op and the real walking begins - all with a heart rate less than 100bpm. Enjoying long walks in the countryside, with compulsory cafe and pub stops #peakdistrict #iliacendofibrosis #rehabilitation

It was 12 days ago when I had my arteries - damaged by cycling - repaired via a 4.5inch incision in my abdomen and another 2.5 inch one in my groin.

The mind fog after a long anaesthesia is starting to clear and I'm no longer reading the same page of a book several times ;) Any recommendations for a good read?

Over the last couple of years I've had a gradually deteriorating problem with my left leg. The blood flow through the artery has been limited causing a loss of power at high intensity. The diagnosis is iliac endofibrosis. On Monday I had surgery in London to repair the artery. My recovery is going to be very slow and gradual, but once I'm back I'm going to be stronger and faster! This has been my view for the last 5 days. Hopefully I can leave hospital tomorrow :)
