Well, I've been AWOL on this thread for quite a while. I just looked in my log and last September 18 was the last day I was able to do any walking other than hobbling around due to knee problems. After cortisone injections in both knees I saw gradual improvement and then had to deal with torn rotator cuff in both shoulders. More cortisone and my painful shoulders kept me from really being to do any purposeful walking but I think I am past that. Today I was able to manage 4 miles and it wasn't too bad, although I can feel it. My knees gave me no problem at all and my shoulders are much better, left shoulder still a bit sore but not bad. I still have the Intermittent claudication in my right leg to deal with and since being more or less inactive it is back to where it was but I am able to get 1/4 mile in at a fairly decent pace before I have to stop. This will improve as long as I push past the point where the pain starts and continue until I can't go further. The body will find ways to increase blood flow but you have to make the muscles scream for more to let it know.
Today 1/17 after 4 months lay off :
4.14 miles, 10,503 steps.
It will be interesting to see how I am doing tomorrow. Hopefully I can get back to my goal of 10K steps a day.

Foggy and a light drizzle here, mild temperatures (I'd like to shovel snow!). Biked and walked today, but I finished the big digging job in the garden yesterday. Now it's just a matter of spot work, digging out the rogue plants and evening out the beds. I'm planning for spring, sorting the seeds by when to start them and where. Had to dump a soaker hose the dog destroyed...I hope she had fun.

Nada. Sitting on my behind with the dog saddled up to me and watching the NFL. Something that I rarely do. Truly a guilty pleasure.

Ain't "parts failure" a wonderful thing? I'm convinced that everything that you do to your body by age 35 comes back to haunt as you reach your 60"s.

My afternoon exercise was reading: Endurance, Shackleton's Incredible Voyage.
And was it ever incredible! Reading that book makes whatever we suffer seem not so bad, after all. Hard to believe they all survived, but they did. Good night, all.

LOL, that's for sure. like the quote by Mickey Mantle ...... "If I had known I was going to live this long I would have taken better care of myself.".

But, what's done is past history and the best we can do is try and do the best we can for the rest of the time we have left.

I had trimmed my toenails a couple of days ago and left a bit of a spike on my big toe. After walking as much as I did yesterday, last night my toe was sore and I was able to trim the piece off. This morning when I went out my toe was killing me and I was sure I was done for the day. I remembered that I had another pair of shoes that were 1/2 a size larger so I tried them and bingo, no pain so I was able to get in a bit of decent walking.
4.23 miles, 10,729 steps.
The last mile was the hardest as my muscles were letting me know they haven't had to work this hard for 5 months.

I hiked a steep mountain trail, 4 miles last Monday, a short hike with a friend Saturday, and a couple of hour hike today. Planet Fitness twice mid week after dinner.

I've done very little so far this year....and really hope it comes back to haunt me when I'm 120.

Kathryn, that is one of my favorite stories, too. Very inspiring!

Well, my goal is 4 miles or 10K steps a day but today my leg muscles said " nope ! Well I worked them harder the last two days than I have for 5 months and they were sore which I understand, so I backed off a bit.
2.27 miles, 5753 steps.
I'll see how it goes tomorrow but I don't want to push it after such a long lay off. Getting stronger though I think.
