Its funny to me that I could be so excited about walking three miles. I used to walk 5 miles fairly regularly. But for the last couple of years, walking has been unpleasant, and so I have walked most days, but it was much shorter. More of a stroll. Just enough to keep Noah happy.
So with the steroid shot, the new medicine, and the brace, I have been looking forward to trying to walk to the end of my road again. And if anyone new is reading, walking to the end of my road is more like hiking. You’re either walking uphill or downhill.
Anyway, Friday Noah and I set off. Once we got halfway up the big hill, I knew we would make it. Here we are taking a rest stop at the end of the road:
And the road back:
I don’t know how often I will do this. The brace is for my right knee. My left knee was complaining halfway through, as well as my back and other joints 🙂 But best of all was how very good I felt about myself all day. I know its not that far. But for me it was a great accomplishment.
I’m not sure how Noah felt about it. This is how he looked for the rest of the day.
