well done steveo, sounds like a truly great decision, and those 30miles will taste so sweet, you will be the proudest dad in town :) keep on posting and keep on reading, it really helps to keep you focussed!


Well done, great decision!

Good luck with the bike ride. I'm doing six miles a day at the moment, can't even imagine a sixty mile round trip! :D

One day at a time. You can do this.

Good luck Steveo :)

I'm an avid cyclist myself, at first I could only ever manage about 20 miles but now with my lovely new lungs a leisurely cycle at the weekend would be no less than 60 miles, so you'll be cycling to see your daughter in next to no time :)


thanxs for the support. blondie 72, 20 miles!!!!!!!!!. i cant manage 3 miles yet. thats smoking for you. body willing but lungs cant get enough air to keep the body going. i've decided to walk/stagger up hills to get the heart pumping and build up some leg strength and endurance. i;m trying to reverse 35 years of smoking and for last few years 40 fags a day. gonna take a while. thanxs again for the post and giving me something to aim for.:)
