Not the kind I would love to be experiencing, but the post-workout mellowness is nothing to be looked down upon. All the contributing steps were taken, hot shower taken, drank lots of cold water, took 440mg Naproxen. I have the heat on my back, ready to shift the heat to my arthritic hip.
I did another six mile walk. That makes four times at this distance since 30 March. The hip starts out aggravating my gait. I can’t get my stride out easily. I will work on that. But that feeling of the sweat pouring out of my body, the air going deep into my lungs is incomparable.
I have done distance running, swimming, walking since I was fifteen. That’s fifty four years. I can’t say it had been consistent. There have been blank pages in my workout diary, lots of them. Yet the workouts are the best anchors I have ever had. So I keep at it.

indeed i am about 4 years younger and 3 years ago Drs wanted to replace my hip joints because of “The ART”. i went to an Eastern medicine guy i knew from work have done acupuncture every three to fours weeks. since my first 4 months of 3 times a week. Pain is there but tolerable. bet you understand that. i don’t run except for when i ref soccer matches up to High School i bike ride (occasionally) and walk 3 to 4 miles a day. The best you can do is get out and keep moving
So for that bravo BRAVO
Movement makes the difference.
