    Any 200+lb walkers out there?

    Thanks for asking.  I didn't get to do it.  I'm on the injured reserve list at this point indefinately.  It SUCKS in a big big way.  I have a shredded achilles tendon due to a nasty vertical spur on the calcanus (sp?) and a problem with the alignment in that ankle.  To make matters worse the left knee is a MESS!  The back of the patella looks like a mountain range as does the top bone Oh I think they called it the femoral head?

     

    I finished a set of orthovisc shots.  A cortisone shot in the front of the knee helped more that the orthovisc.  I need to give up and have surgery for the achilles. 

     

    I'm still walking.  I do a mile or so a day with our old arthritic dog.  It is a slow walk but I refuse to give up.  I should get a bicycle and ride but I just don't care for riding that much. 

     

    How are you???

    Sorry everything was against you for Big Sur.

     

    I'm doing well.  Enjoying the cool down after those weeks of 100 degree weather.  Even walking at 6:30 in the morning has been too hot for this girl!  I wish I had a dog to join me on a walk.  At least my husband walks with me.  We're doing 2+ miles 3 days a week, but I'd like to up that without pushing too hard too fast.
