Hi, am I talking to John Boyter ? Yes that is me talking. I am one of the physiotherapists at the hospital and wanted to hear if you have continued your exercise program.

While in Copenhagen having my morning coffee I got a call from the hospital AUH “Skejby Sygehus” in Aarhus, from one of the physiotherapists at the rehabilitation program I had participated in after a heart attack I had in June, soon to be six months ago. They wanted to know how I am doing and if I have been exercising as they recommended. I told them how I have joined a gym and train twice a week and I have continued my swimming.

I told the physiotherapist about my concern about not doing enough cardio vascular training and she recommended using the exercise bike before and after my workout with weights at the gym. I may try that but still hoping I can include it more in my swimming. Now I had some days interrupting my exercise program but I’m planning to go to the gym tomorrow Saturday when I am back in Aarhus.

Having a last afternoon coffee at Krøyers Cafe with an old friend Jørgen from University before heading back with the train. I am still postponing making any major nutritional changes. Maybe it will be my new year’s resolution. Especially giving up sugar will certainly lead to some serious withdrawals. And I have actually put on weight since I was in the hospital despite the exercise.
