“Trekking poles are for walking and not fetching!” Just one of the things I may or may not have hollered at Carly on our nature walk this morning.
I may be disabled and mostly out of commission as far as the working out goes but that doesn’t mean Carly gets to be a couch potato. If I want to keep her moving forward towards being a polite well behaved dog than getting her on the trail helps emensly. I personally feel better when I get out and just move and don’t sit on the couch all day feeling like a cripple. Believe me, these days I have lots of those days.
Mary, Charlie, Carly and I did an easy three mile dog walk in the wilderness today and I feel phenomenal afterwards! I can easily say I have no pain in my sciatica at the moment. I do have occasional numbness from my angry degenerative disks pressing on my nerves like a little bitch ( a little bitch I can barely feel!) but after a very not strenuous at all dog walk I feel great tonight!
Okay maybe that’s because I am at home with a vodka, grapefruit and soda water and I’m currently in the jacuzzi with Epsom salts but still…
Days like today I feel like recovery is not just a dream and maybe just maybe it can happen with out spine surgery.
That was a good day. After a great workout this is one of my favorite healthy deserts.
