Yesterday, I took my car to get new front tires, the oil changed and the transmission fluid changed. I chose a place near the shopping mall so that I could exercise while I waited. I walked around the entire mall three times at a brisk pace. It took me approximately one hour. I checked back to see if my car was finished and it wasn't. I decided to have a grilled chicken salad and water at the food court in the mall. After I finished eating my lunch, I walked around for another hour and tried to keep a leisurely pace instead of keeping the brisk pace that I walked before lunch. By the time my car was finished, I was exhausted. I dragged home and felt like I was crawling to bed. My knees and feet were very sore. So much for having good intentions!
Today, I may take a leisurely walk of about 20 minutes but no longer. My knees and feet are still tender. It will take all day for the swelling in my knees to go down. Now I remember why I exercise in water!!! As SLENDERELLA61 and I tell each other often, more isn't necessarily better, sometimes it's just more. Lesson learned. I can't wait to get back into the water!
