Almost two years ago I was diagnosed with heart failure. Before that I was a fairly fanatical athlete, with cycling as the main sport.
In the meantime I am well adjusted to medication, have received a beautiful ICD (which fortunately has not yet had to prove itself) and I have started cycling (mainly Zwift) again. I no longer focus on FTP’s but mainly try to enjoy a healthy effort. Staying fit is the main goal. Of course my competitive nature sometimes gets in the way, but all in all I’m starting to find my own new pace.
I wondered if there are more fellow sufferers on Zwift who would like to exchange experiences and knowledge about sports with heart failure. Perhaps you are also in for a group ride every now and then (out together, at home together).
My name is Kees, I am a Dutchman and I am already 58 years old.
Let me know if you are interested. Kind regards, Kees (aka Kees G4iiiiant…or I drive a Giant TCR 1 with 4iiii powercranks)
