Good grief - I thought this was going to get *easier* when I built up the muscles a bit. A little 20 mile run out to Carnfunnock Country Park in the wind and rain - no problem. Until I decide to do the 20 miles home again. This time the wind has changed, and it's blowing directly against me. In gusts - so every time you work up a bit of speed, it saps it completely. The last 5 miles via Carrickfergus was positively painful. On the plus side, it's unlikely that we'll have anything like that in Jordan.
I thought I was Ready.
I may have thought wrong.
We've done it again! This time we biked from Petra in Jordan up to Nazareth in Israel, to raise money for the Nazareth Hospital CT Scanner appeal. Nazareth is the largest Arab town in Israel, but they still don't have a dedicated Stroke Unit to cope with this devastating condition and major cause of death.
