I had a doctor's appointment today and when we were leaving, the dogs got out. We got them back in, but I was running late. I had to run up two flights of stairs and got there with 3 minutes to spare. I know the dogs are frustrated that I haven't been walking them since I've been sick. I think I am finally getting better. The cold weather we have been having has finally broke and its a breezy 68F. I'm not coughing up green phlegm today, so the antibiotics are finally kicking in. Okay, back to life, back to the routine. I'm getting out of bed and doing it.
By the end of the walk, I was struggling to breath like I was when I ran up the stairs. I think this is what I was like 7 years ago when I first started walking my dog. Its frustrating how I can lose 7 years of progress by skipping a week of walking. Okay, I should cut myself some slack. I'm stuffy and not getting as much oxygen as normal do. I am sure once I start walking everyday again, I will recover the loss quickly.
