I spent two almost three days on my butt and it was driving me up the wall. I had shoulder surgery on Friday and so that day was gone.

Then Saturday I was still on the pain meds. Ugh. I felt dopey all day.

Then Sunday I watched the idiot box until the Ravens came on. I got one of the boys to help me set up my bike on the trainer and I would pedal throughout the game, off and on.

It felt good.

Monday I walked two miles in the rain to get a haircut and shampoo.

Tuesday I walked 3.6 miles then I rode with my son to the community college to get him registered for the GED and I left him there and walked home, 1.4 miles. Total 5 miles.

Today, I walked another 4 miles.

I can't wait until running gets green lighted. Though I must admit there is a certain something about walking that is missing in running.

I had almost forgotten.

Maybe this shoulder injury was was way of forcing me to slow down a little; it forced me to take a break.

Ahhh, it's day 2 of my GOYB streak!. I had to be careful with the side bends because of my tempermental lower back and current stiff neck, but I tightened my abs and did five VERY GENTLY each side every time I took a break. I did at least 5 sets - perhaps as many as 10. It has inspired me so much I'm about to go downstairs and do some of the back exercises I've been avoiding. I think I'll start with just the hamstring stretches, easy bridges, and a little foam rolling on the sore spot. Thanks for this thread - it's really helping me to get the ball (gently) rolling.
