Unbelievable….

4 months ago I was unsure if I could still ride a bicycle, I used to watch Chris go out on his wishing that I could venture out with him.

I was told that by strengthening my core it would help with my back pain so we decided that I was also get a bike, it has been a slow process as some of the weeks my back was in such a state that I couldn’t even think of going out, but I kept at it.

Chris has had the patience of a Saint with me, he takes me out does a cycle run with me and then goes out again to do his own cycle run.

I have the watery eyes problem when riding and needed some sport sunglasses but didn’t want to go down the route of prescription ones as it would mean new ones every time I bought new glasses so I heard or read about the Over Glasses.  basically sun glasses that fit over your prescription glasses.

Mine arrived today

Excellent work Jak!!! Very well done indeed. I envy your drive and perseverance! Also love your over glasses. I have used them with great success...they can be quite comfortable after the first couple of wearings.
Keep up the great work! Don't know how you find the time to do what you do.

Ten thumbs up for this JAk. You did really well here, it is sooo great and well done hun, and I really hope, that it can help you strengthen your back, so you´ll feel much better with that too.
I can´t believe, that you haven´t been able to get these overglasses there easily before, as we´ve had them here in Denmark for many many years, so here most people have them, if they wear glasses too. But really happy for you, that you found them and got some really nice ones even. Keep up the amazing work hun.
