Exercise and Progress - Baby Steps
Friday, June 21, 2013
I parked the car across from the library about half a block from the drive thru at the post office. So I walked to the mailbox and back to the truck and then on down the block and up the street to the library. I was walking in the hot sun and humidity that the first day of summer brought us, and I got breathless and sweaty and thirsty with the effort. Believe me when I say that I don't think I would have even tried walking like that last week, but I walked a lot in the city with my daughter the past few days and climbed in and out of the truck and her car, and also up and down the steps at her house. I'm getting better. The climbing in is easier with less knee pain and I'm faster at doing it. I may ice my right knee tonight, but I'm making progress.
