Rebuilding: Day 34

Since surgery, I have been doing some walking, but more leg, abs, and some arm exercises.  All my exercising has been in the house and at a minimum of effort.  I have had little energy or drive.

I wanted to change that.  I felt like I was in a place where I could easily spiral down.  I could easily give up on so much.  So, today, after I did some cooking, I went on a hike.  Right away, I noticed that I wouldn’t be able to take on anything strenuous.  I opted for the flatter trails out of a web of trails on the local everything trail maze.  It is a large web of roads, trails, and ruts that create an interesting place to hike.  I can make the trail as long or as short as I want with little backtracking. I climbed but not the serious climbs, I zigzagged around and I was all alone.  The trail was great.  I could see where someone had been improving it for mountain bikes. At the end of the hike, I hiked a little over a mile.  I was tired and hungry.  I felt like I had gone on an all day hike.

The next few days, I am going to try to exercise outside as much as I can. I feel better and more motivated. I also need to rebuild my stamina.  I would like to be able to hit a good trail next weekend.  So rebuilding is the agenda of the week.
