Oh, my–another busy week flew by. I’m looking forward to things being quieter this coming week. I had the last visit with the physical therapist last Tuesday and now I’ll need to look to you all to help me stay accountable for continuing the exercises 🙂 They have helped but it’s oh so easy to put off doing them when I don’t have to report in to someone. Part of the problem with exercise is that I overdid it w/ one of the hip strengthening exercises and irritated a muscle in my back, that then begins to hurt and spasm up when I walk more than 10 minutes.
I exercised several days during the week, spent Saturday doing intensive housework, and Sunday was a slug. Here are the details:
Monday, 10/18–chorus after work–no exercise
Tuesday, 10/19–walk 30 minutes, partial PT (some back pain so I stuck to front & side leg raises)
Wednesday, 10/20–work, dinner out, writing group, no exercise
Thursday, 10/21–walk 25 minutes, full pt routine
Friday, 10/22–only walked 10 minutes–cold and raw and my back was a bit achy–however I did stairs more at work and went for a short walk at lunch
Saturday, 10/23–lots of housework, felt like I’d had a good workout by the end of the day but nothing aerobic
