My advice to Choco on being better

Wheels of Happiness

Rizal Philippines    July 21, 2014

I happened to have Choco2 on a one on one occasion and I had the opportunity to say a couple of things regarding his biking

1.   We are proud that he was allowed to join the Philippine Olympic team screening trials.  It is a great honor to be included in that elite group.

2.  The hope is really in the youth not us oldies and foggies.  Therefore he should aspire and strive to be champion.

3.  It all starts in the heart and the desire to be  a champ.  Since he is young he can be the champ.

4.  If others can, so he can too.

5. All that is needed is disciplined, constant hard practice.  It took Lance Armstrong 12 years before he won (?) his first TDF.  Others say that you need 10 years at least of constant deep practice.   If you were defeated in the steep hills, practice some more.  Maybe a hundred times, and at the hills where you lost. TDF riders, have houses in France where they handle to climb and attack the Alps and Pyrenees.

Maybe  look for a coach.  Have someone mentor you on how to ride great strong and fast

I hope some of this got through Choco2.  (Jimwell Mariposa)

I was not able to bike for a week, reason, I could not walk and my right foot was swollen and painful

Two Mondays ago, my foot was swollen and very painful. I could not stand nor take a step. For three days I was disabled.  I could not get up from bed and could not go to work.  And that meant I could not bike, even the trainer.

I suspected that I I had gout, or that I had a big toe injury.  The Sunday before, I climbed Antipolo.  But there was nothing that indicated that my condition would deteriorate that fast.

Jorgeus Biker had gout?

Rizal Philippines   July 11 2014

This author thought that like the giants at TDF, he like Cavendish, Froome would be sidelined because of injuries (or even gout)  The two mentioned bikers had to quit Tour de France because of painful injuries.

Jorgeusbiker was still able to bike last Sunday but Monday evening, he could not walk anymore   The big toe was swollen and Tuesday morning could not go to office.  However on Thursday morning, he was able to have blood exam and X ray.  He even saw Pangskie at the diagnostic center (he has high blood and cholesterol)

And lo and behold.  The diagnostics showed the health of Jorgeusbiker to be normal.  He had an injury with his toes which struck the bottom of the bed while on a travel to the north.

He is now mobile and hopes to bike again next week
