My mom and I are going to begin a walking program together. We will do our first walk together on August 10th.....we chose that day as it is the first day of my vacation time that way i can devote my energy to the new program without also having to go to work......by the time I go back to work on the 22nd i will be use to the walking routine.
We will go to the high school track to begin with because there are bleachers i can sit on if the back pain gets to be too much and I need a rest. It will also allow us to begin 1 lap at a time(1/4 mile). Once i know I can walk some distance without needing to sit we will find a neighborhood route to walk together.
In the mean time I still have to do some extra uncomfortable walking at work this weekend. It is the county fair Saturday and we were told ALL 3 have to go to this so that will mean walking/pushing a wheelchair in hot weather for a couple of hours this Saturday(tomorrow).
Once i get to walking as exercise i will no longer dread these outings at work LOL...i will actually once again look forward to them as i miss getting out with them but the physical part is just sooooooo hard for me right now.....BUT with this new walking commitment with Mom those days will soon be over!
