Regular visits to the fitness center continue, and have been good therapy in many ways; however, a particular stretching exercise I've been doing seems to have had a detrimental effect. Luckily I've noticed the connection, and found another way to do the same stretch. Clearly, healing is happening now, with a little help from acupuncture and KT tape. But here's the thing - it's time to resume those practice walks, and the question is: how far and/or vigorously shall I exercise while still slightly injured? The obvious answer - listening to my body!
*Walkin' Don has crossed the U.S. on foot multiple times. On meeting him (a big, strapping, long-legged fellow of about 6'5") I could see why he was able to cover as much as 50 miles in a day(!) My own ambitions fall a bit short of that!
