I walked again tonight. First time in a week. Last week I walked two days and then woke up Thursday morning with horrible neck and shoulder pain. It actually had persisted all week. I’ve also been battling a migraine for several days. Ya, I’m a mess.
I decided to take Thursday and Friday off. Saturday I was fifteen minutes away from leaving work and going to walk, when I fell. I slipped in a puddle while taking out the trash. I landed badly, twisting both my right ankle and knee. I landed on my left hand and knee.
Yup, that slowed me down. Sunday it was really sore. Monday it was still swollen and sore. Tuesday I just didn’t feel well, so today I walked.
Good lord it was hot out there! It was a beautiful night on the waterfront. The view really does help! I left the parking lot, rounded the corner and saw this. Oh yes, the view really does help. I logged 2.18 miles tonight, although my pace was a lousy 43:55. It was so hot, I was afraid to stop.
I felt lousy. Hot, headache, heartburn, swelling hands, but I did it. I peeled off my shoes, socks, and knee brace when I got back to the car. My brace was soaked, yuck! My knee felt good though 😉 I also wore my new bra. It’s a crazy intense sports bra that, well, keeps things from moving. I’m hoping that helps with the neck and shoulder issue.
I need to remember not to eat too close to walking. I also need to figure out my hydration. Tomorrow is an off day, so Friday night I’ll do this again!
