Thank you! I'm ready for another day on the journey. I found a comfy little cave to rest up in last night because my bad ankle was a bit swollen and hurting.

The weather this year is really dragging on me! But I'm on the treadmill right now, walking out a couple miles in addition to the miles I did in the gym this morning.

Yesterday was another day with a lot of time on my feet; more than the days I would walk for exercise. The weather will be a factor for a few more weeks but when we go to a larger town, we are walking through stores a lot, which is hard on my knee.

Good luck with it Rick. You're a trier! emoticon emoticon

I have only just realised that I am not recording the miles I should be ... I think I'm losing miles as there are lots of exercises I do that I don't account for. I know, I know ... never finish a sentence with a preposition..bwah! I just can't be bothered at the moment as I am hot and tired and typing as fast as I can so I can get out of this hot and stuffy sunroom.

Yesterday seemed like a marathon walking event with all of the walking we did while shopping; over two hours, which was very hard on my knee and feet.

I do not post unless I make some progress, so you can see I am not really making daily progress yet; more likely to be "ever other day"...

Yesterday was my first day back to work on the railroad; what many observers would call it a park train. Spent 5˝ hours laying track, which is a lot of work, all on my feet, though I had to pace myself a lot so I would last the entire time.

Get well soon Rick and take it easy till then!
Sorry I have not been on here for a while.
I have been walking at least 3 miles every day since I was last here. I am planning to walk further now my toe is a little better. But today it was really playing up. I still managed my 3 miles, though. Not including my other exercise which was not a lot today!

Finally started my Day One "officially" yesterday. The sidewalks and roads were still a bit snowy and icy, but my husband and I managed 30 minutes.
emoticon

It was a great way to get warmed up for the rest of my workout. I changed out of my heavy boots into workout gear and did a Zumba routine (for first time ever) and Power Yoga/Pilates (fairly new to me still). I actually worked up a sweat! When I do a simple "Walk Away the Pounds" video I never break out in a sweat, but dancing and jumping around for Zumba, and getting that "yoga burn" whooped my butt! I pretty much slept like a baby.

The progress thread has migrated to the monthly threads, so we are still logging, just not in this thread. Outdoor exercise is definitely a challenge at this time of year. Hang in there.

I started this thread almost two years ago and it died out in June, which is when I had my heart surgery. To me it was my daily motivation to walk enough to post about.

It is only going to be a high of 37° here today, if we are lucky, so outdoor walking may be out of reach for now.

Only 1 mile yesterday, but the workout was primarily yoga and strength training. I'm thinking that because it was a kind of icky day, weather-wise, I didn't really want to leave The Forsaken Inn just yet. ;)
