Hi all. I know Claude and Lia are away (maybe you’re back Claude?). Sara and Nancy, are you also away? Or just wilting in the heat?
My week started out energetically but the back/hip pain I’ve been dealing with continues to be an issue. I’ve got a doctor’s appt for a week from Monday and until then will exercise as I’m able to. I mentioned in my last post that I was considering a short term membership at a local gym so I could swim laps but I don’t know whether that would help or hurt whatever is going on. So, here’s the week:
Sunday 7/25–2 short walks for a total of 30 minutes
Monday 7/26–2 walks–1 for 15 minutes; 1 for 25 minutes–hot so I moved slowly on a somewhat hilly route for the longer walk
Tuesday 7/27–40 minute walk–v. hot so was walking at a 2o min/mile pace, which is a bit slower than usual for me.
Wednesday 7/28–nothing–heat and meeting after work
Thursday 7/29–nothing–set out on a walk after work but was feeling enough back/hip pain that I cut the walk short and came home to stretch.
Friday 7/30–nursing my back/hip–some stretching–nothing else
Saturday 7/31–busy day–lots of errands, housework, cooking for company, etc. –no “exercise”
Sunday 8/1–once again nursing the sore back/hip–some stretching, nothing else–feeling restless however, so we’ll see if I continue being prudent 🙂
