Did another 1.9 miles today. This time I did it in 27 min and 33 sec. I am SORE today. My feet hurt from walking down the hill on Sunday. My hips were really tightening up by the time I was midway through the second cul-de-sac. By the time I got home the pain had encompassed not only my hips by my lower back. I am assuming I was changing my gait to accommodate the hip discomfort. Tomorrow’s scheduled walk is only 15 minutes. I may shorten my walk to only the entrance of the neighborhood, around my cul-de-sac and back to my house and spend quite awhile doing nothing but stretching to get my hip loosened back up.
I was doing a pretty good job of talking myself out of going on my walk when Papa Bear came downstairs and asked if I wanted to go on a walk with him. The Cubs were playing with various kids throughout the neighborhood. How can I turn down a walk with the love of my life – not only a walk with him, but ALONE with him! So I got another couple of miles on my shoes, the blood moving, the fresh air deep in my lungs.
