Today I walked an entire kilometer, without stopping.
An entire kilometer!
My last, post-injection, walk was a quarter of a kilometer, but today I managed a full one. Go me!
I’m using the treadmill, to ensure that I don’t jar my back (under doctor’s orders!) and it was kept level. It wasn’t easy. The last quarter was painful, but I was determined to finish on a round number! Being a tad obsessive isn’t always a good thing!
I followed it with a tough bike ride; last time the bike ride was easy – this time my thighs were letting me know that they’d also just walked the furthest they had in a year!
I was so proud, I logged the distances on Map My Fitness and tweeted and shared my achievement.
It is, however, a really beautiful day and I would love to have walked that kilometer with Murphy, down through the woods. The uneven ground makes this a total no-no and I have to content myself with progress made on a treadmill in my own backyard whilst watching old episodes of Star Trek.
And I am content.
I walked an entire kilometer!
