Spring is Here!

Posted on

Kathy and I really enjoyed walking a lot last spring and summer with treks to Starbucks or Market Basket. It was a good distraction and we enjoyed the time together. Spring 2016 is here and today we made the 5 mile round trip to Market Basket (MB). I was limping a bit right out of the driveway and feared it may be a difficult walk. The pace was pretty slow to start but steady nonetheless.

We made it to MB and got a few things that we needed for dinner and breakfast tomorrow. We filled up our backpacks and headed back towards home. As we got passed the half way mark of the return trip I realized, via my Strava App, we were on a faster pace than the outbound portion of the trip. The 5th mile ended up being the fastest by over a minute which was really encouraging.

I have been a bit impatient (alright, more than a bit) as far as my lack of mobility goes since the surgery. Today was a step forward for sure. While the left quad is still tight and the knee a bit sore due to compensating for missing quad muscle, I was able to not only get thru the 5 miles but get stronger as the walk went on.

Ended the night with a great dinner and some time in the back yard around the fire pit.
