Saturday - shh don't tell my surgeon

Saturday, April 20, 2013

I went for a walk today. That used to be my main exercise until the surgeon told me to move to water and not walk. So like a good doobie I went swimming 4-5 days a week. Today the weather was so beautiful I went for a walk. I walked 2 miles had no problem while I was walking. My problem came in when I stopped and tried to sit down. Oh so gingerly I lowered myself to my sofa to recoup.

Still felt good overall and glad I took a walk. I won't push it and do it as a norm but an occasional break from my swimming will do me good before my surgery. It will keep me going back to the pool. Doing anything over and over can get boring even if I am limited in my cardio for now.

    When is your hip surgery? I think you are doing very well, considering. I have had multiple knee surgeries so I understand bone pain. I hope you continue to do well and have a wonderful Sunday!

    "Mum's" the word around here. He/she didn't hear it from us. Glad you were able to enjoy the walk. Sorry you had to pay for it afterwards. I know how that feels (I forgot when your surgery is???)

    Ginny, you must be like me....do as I say, not as I do. I keep pushing the ticket and one time I will push to far. I need to do something. Walking 2 blocks is almost not possible anymore because of the pain. Water exercise is okay if I don't do more then 5 mins and then rest for 10. Oh well, we do what we can. Good luck with the surgery. I will see you all when I get back.

    You're right. It does get boring just doing the same thing over & over. Glad you were able to take the walk, but don't push too hard. You don't want to do any more damage.
