It has been a long time since I posted

It has been a very long time since I have posted do to many reasons, mostly do to medication problems. Then we decided to put the house up for sale and move to a retirement community in Monroe Township, NJ.  Well the moving took up most of the hours of the day as we had to get the house ready for sale. Cleaning out years of junk and doing minor repairs. Then it came time to put the house up and that meant not having a riding schedule as the broker was calling to arrange for people to come and see the house.   We were told we would sell the house in a few weeks, at a price we felt was good, but weeks turned into months and we dropped the price of the house. A few weeks later a nice couple with two children gave us an offer and it was our asking price so we accepted.  Now the inspection came and a few items needed to be fixed. We rushed to find a home which we did but the owners were renting it so we had to give them time to move out, they wanted 6 months, but we told them two or no deal. They accepted and we are in the house three months. Now a lot of time is spent fixing things to our liking and some minor changes. I am hoping everything will be done in a few months so riding will begin.

Why I haven't posted!

In the early spring I put my home up for sale and started looking for a new place to live. It has been nothing but a nightmare. After one deal feel through to buy a home we finally found one we liked, but not as much as the first. Now we have the problem of selling our home, and that has turned into many sleepless nights and lots of anxiety. People want everything to be new when the house is 40 years old. They want it for a bargain price and they want a mini mansion for the price of a normal home. I am a total wreck, and have had no desire to ride yet alone do anything. I have done many stressful things in my life, but selling a home is the worst! If it doesn't sell soon, we will come up with an alternate plan, but I sure as hell am not going to give in to these bargain hunters. HGTV, Trulla and the company they merged with cause more problems as their pricing is usually a huge amount or more off. I hope this is resolved soon as I am at my wits end.

Conditions are improving, so ride today was more enjoyable.

My ride seemed easier and had only a short duration left leg cramp. I rode through it and I am now as good as new. I hope this is the end of the bad rides and I am looking forward to easier rides.

My strength is coming back!

After today's ride I have hope that my full strength will return. I rode over 10 miles and my average speed was about a mile under my normal. My legs are weak, but not painful and I feel pretty good.

Still having a hard time getting my legs back!

I did great last season from day one. But this season I have leg pain and weakness. My muscles seem fine no loss that I can see. I think it might be the change in my medication at the end of last season. I will ask the doctor. I won't change the medication as it is working for my PTSD. I also won't give up riding, as it is necessary for my well being.

Rode only a short distance do to leg cramps and weakness. I guess I have to work on my legs again.

I have been very busy getting my home ready for sale and have neglected my riding!

It seems like every waking hour is devoted to preparing the house for a possible buyer coming to view my home. I have spent endless hours cleaning out things that haven't seen the light of day in as many years as I have been living here. Also there are minor repairs that I have done, so riding was on the back burner. Many people have come to see the house, but so far no takers, I am not in a rush. Today I got a chance to ride as the broker took off and made no appointments for the weekend. My ride stats are below.
