...a little anyway.

I started out at a little after 9 this morning, spiffy new shoes on my feet, and did three miles in an hour. Not the best pace in the world, but I'll take it considering it's my first real walk in who knows how long.
the expected hip pain didn't surface until mile 2, but it was different than usual; typically I get about a mile into walking and it feels like my hip joints are grinding together, but this time the pain was more to the surface and probably in the bursa. It wasn't intolerable, in any case.
The nice thing about living in a small town is that even the major streets are walkable. This street has a regular flow of traffic, but it's got a sidewalk the entire way...I even Trikke down it quite a bit.
And from there I can get to this:
A fairly decent bike path. Trikke worthy, too. After I finished the 3 miles in foot I went home for the Trikke and did 5.5 on it...and I'm feeling it tonight.
I'm not sure what's on tap for tomorrow; I don't think I'll walk but if I get a chance I'll Trikke. That's better for cardio-conditioning, and spares my hips a bit.
But Thursday...another 3 miles. And with luck, 6 on Saturday and Sunday. Let's hope I can manage that.
