Yesterday I walked for an hour at a steady pace. My new knee loves it when I take her for a good walk. Not too fast, not too slow. It was very enjoyable. Then, near the end of the walk I noticed that sweat was pouring down my face. To admit it, I was surprised. All I was doing was walking – no elevation, either.
I’ve known for years how plain old walking is great exercise, and my recuperation from a total knee replacement loves it. (I use the term total knee replacement during my blogs so search engines can pick it up..:) )
That evening when I got home, I showered, had a cold beverage, and plopped down on the sofa. I put an ice pack on my knee (it was crying for one since it was so swollen), elevated my leg, and then turned into a couch potato for the rest of the evening.
Wow…did it feel good. 🙂
