the wall

Thursday, February 06, 2014

lol i hear about people hitting the wall. not quite sure what that is..i used to do distance swimming and i loved it so much NO FAR WAS TOO FAR. It was nothing for me to swim 5 miles for fun. I ran track. Cross country. i didnt much like it but it kept me in shape for swimming (yeah i was fat then too..but somehow it did effect that.)
so. I've been doing this walking. and its hard. I hurt...but i'm doing it. Today, is harder than it has been. I cant get motivated. I only have 5 thousand steps done..and thats half of what i need. its 2:30 PM so i need to get a move on..
I know..some are reading this saying 10k steps? thats nothing..and sorry to bore my faithful readers but to sum up...i had a knee replacement gone bad. They didnt think I would walk ever again without aids. 3 weeks ago 2 miles a day (4k steps) was really hard. so to up it to 10 k a day is a big step.
I need to go make pizza crust..and maybe take Lucy for a walk when Kevin is done plowing us out..oh yeah i shovelled at the bakery, too. we got between 10 and 12" yesterday. today is sunny and GORGEOUS!!!

    I think any progress you make is "great". Especially with your recent knee replacement. Take your time and you will reach your goal of 10,000 steps and then higher. I am happy just to get 20-25 minutes of exercise in at this time.
