It is Saturday and that means I go a little further.
This week has had some real ups and downs. Since I started this on May 31st I have been moving some part of me every day, until this last Tuesday. I followed up last Saturday with 30 minutes on stationary bike on Sunday and then another one mile walk on Monday. I felt so good I agreed to fill in and play golf Monday afternoon-102 degrees. (No I did not walk the course I rode in a cart.) By the end of the day I was drained. Tuesday was not better; I could hardly get out of bed. That was the first day I failed to walk. Wednesday-Friday I did combination of walks and rides and slowly got to feeling better
Woke up this morning and for first time in almost four weeks, I wanted to go for a walk and I wanted to go a little further. I have been experiencing some hip and knee pain in the early part of my walks. So this morning I rode the bike for 5 minutes before going out on the street. The combination of steady improvement over four weeks and the 5 minute bike ride made the day.
The numbers tell the story…1.4 miles and the pace was the fastest I have walked. I can’t tell you how good I felt when I got home.
I know I have a long way to go, but I feel like I am really making progress. I have to tell you it is a bit un-nerving for me to wake up and want to go for a walk. No one was home; I could have just as easily crawled back into bed and slept through cartoons. But I wanted to get out on the street.
