Common sense would dictate that all parents want to protect their kids,, but what they may not process is that if they suffer a brain injury, more than they will feel the pain. Their families will also suffer. Please read this for more information about this.
My injury has cognitive elements, but I was also afflicted with physical manifestations, limiting my abilities. I’m unable to walk unsupported, can’t run, do not have balance to ride a bicycle, and am unable to swim. This gentleman received trauma to his brain, but nothing physical. He recently completed an Ironman triathlon, swim, bike, and run, a total of 140.6 miles.
I’m not riding a bicycle like I used to, it’s a tricycle. However, when someone hears tricycle, I think that what they’ll think of isn’t like what I’ve got. My ride may have three wheels, but I’m able to sustain a speed of close to 20km/h, and completed The Army Run half-marathon in 1:07. The winner of my category completed it in a freaky-fast 38 minutes, the second was 42, so I’ve got a ways to go.And, the best thing about riding is that I don’t get any saddle-sores!
|I’m going on a ride this coming Sunday! I’m going to ride with my neighbor, Matt, who’s helping me to increase my average speed to be able to complete The Army Run in one hour.|
Today I went for a ride , and it was pretty sweet. It was a little more than 22km, and I did it in about an hour and a quarter. That was with little training, and it’s made me realize that my goal of doing The Army Run in one hour is realistic. I’m going to train for it, pretty hard, and finish the race in one hour.
