Walking feels pretty good!
Saturday, October 09, 2010
Ok, it's the end of the week and I've had this sore back for a week and a day now. It is better, movement has improved and I should be able to start back on Fire sometime next week if not on Monday. I am excited about that. Three days ago I wanted to go for a short walk, but the crop harvesters were out in full force around our place. The ground is so dry that when they drove past, it looked like white out in the winter except that it was beige out (dusty gravel roads!) so I didn't go for a walk cos I didn't want to chance a vehicle not seeing me and being run over or something. Yesterday there were less machinery out and I went for a walk - not a real brisk one as my back still hurts some, but it was nice and steady and I clocked an hour. It felt great to get out and move!! The temperature was 86 - Indian Summer - and today was even hotter. I went for a 45 minute walk and both days there was a breeze so I just walked on the side of the road where the wind blew away from me. That way I didn't have to choke on dust when the vehicles drove by. :D So I'm hopeful to being 100% healed within a week (less would be better).
