Hi all, I have been lucky enough to carry on cycling to keep fit through the EM although am finding most other exercise impossible now, even boxercise because it involves too much standing still. I do get a flare within 5-10 minutes of the class but have learned to (with the help of Gabapentin) work through the pain. I do most of the class with numb lower legs and feet and as long as I have a ice cold shower afterwards the flare is luckily short lived.
I have managed to gain the status of the best in the class (I have a severe case of stubbonness which means I shout, scream and swear at the EM in my head and am determined not to let it take one of my loves away from me just yet).
I was asked to join in sponsored back to back spin classes to raise money for Sports Relief 2012. I was terrified at first but have agreed to do as many hour long classes back to back for charity. I usually only do a 45 minute class but will try to do between 3 and 4 hours on Saturday 17th March. I know this will be a massive feat for me and wanted to share with my support network what I was planning on doing.
Thanks for taking the time to read this
