So, just what on earth has His Podgeness been doing since the beginning of June: No Posts, not updates, no progress reports, noffink. The truth is, Podge has been feeling very very sorry for himself having somehow picking up three chest infections in a row 🤧. But, with three courses of antibiotics and steroids, it does look as though those nasty germ things have been beaten into submission.

😏

That should help explain the gap between ‘Podge V COPD Week 6’ and ‘Podge V COPD Week 14’

After a shaky start, I did manage to do two rides last week totalling 38 and a bit miles. It was tough and hard on the lungs but good at the same time. This week, my goal will be to do 100 miles: Time will tell (as will my lungs and legs 😂).

As the charts show, my weight and BMI go up and down as much Roland Rat in ‘Splat the Rat’ but I aint giving in.

Podge must try harder.

My major goal is to complete 2020 virtual miles in 2020. To date, I’ve completed 508 leaving a mere 1512 to do in the next 158 days: I reckon I can do it so long as I don’t have to take too much more time out. I’ve also walked 43 miles against the Hadrian’s Wall challenge leaving just 47 to go.

As I’m so fond of saying, COPD sucks but I ain’t giving in. I must do better. I will do better.

Until next time, Go Podge Go.😷

  1. Way to go! I was diagnosed with COPD in late February. I have had asthma forever, but the doctors did not see signs of COPD until I had xrays for pneumonia in February. Our medical system shut down for Covid in early March but my doctor did put me on a new inhaler to try. With no access to further tests or therapy, I started walking my dog to see if that would help. At the time, I could barely make it to the end of our block and back. Now, five months later, we are walking 4 to 5 km every morning. My health is getting better every day and my dog is absolutely svelte. I started weight lifting this week. Will see how that goes but I am hopeful it will help as well.
