When I hurt myself last spring, I lost a lot of ground, physcially.

I'm trying something a little different this time. I'm trying to take a walk every day.

I can't believe how hard it is to get myself motivated. To start with (especially given the extremely steep hills here), I walk as far as I can in 5 minutes and then come back. Minimal effort, right? I promised myself I would start on Monday because the weather is improving now and the worst I might have to deal with is a rain delay.

It's been a fight to get started every day. I'm not sure why. Well, that's not entirely true. The first day was hard because I had absolutely no enthusiasm for the project.  The second day, my calves were incredibly sore. Today I was also sore, but it wasn't as hard to stretch the kinks out, and already I am puffing less when I climb the driveway. Hopefully every day I do it will make it easier to do the next day.

Yep, one day at a time. Sometimes I have to force myself to work out though. I find stretching to be relaxing though so I look forward to it after working out.
