Distance record

Decided to do my exercise bike work out while watching the old John Wayne film, true Grit.

It must have inspired me as I clocked up 5.1 miles and 291 calories burnt so feel pooped out but very contented, my left leg was driving the bike for a good part and thleg kep true and straight


Wow that’s amazing progress. Well done @mrfrederickson
Think you’ve earned a little rest now :grin:

Thanks one of my joys is pedaling on the bike gives me a goal and a sense of purpose :rofl:

@mrfrederickson, Good job! Nice way to get through it with the film as a distraction.

I fell asleep snoring in a chair for a good 40 minutes.so anymore will have to be tonight, my brain blocking medicine is being upped to 50mg of noratripyline in a bid to give me long pain free existence, here goes

@mrfrederickson a 40 min nap sounds good to me. I didn’t get a nap today. Hope your upped meds help your pain.

Yes it makes me speed up or slow down with the run of the action, sad but effective and helps my fat burning in keeping my weight down a bi


Well done Mr F. You have exactly the right attitude. The exercise bike will strengthen both legs as well as raising your morale.

Well done @mrfrederickson fantastic progress you’ve been making

Hi, quick question for mrfrederickson, is noratripyline similar to amitriptyline?
Thanks in advance.

True Grit, very appropriate :sunglasses: brilliant to hear your progress, and hope upping your meds helps you along the way. :+1:


ortriptyline better than amitriptyline for pain?

Nortriptyline is sometimes preferred to amitriptylinebecause it reputedly has a lower incidence of associated adverse effects, which can increase patient compliance and can be particularly useful in older people who are more likely to experience adverse effects such as confusion and agitation, and postural hypotension

I just googled it I didn’t realise they were nearly the same so interesting you brought up the question. :blush:

Thanks for that Loshy, much appreciated.
