Walking the way to health
"Walking can give you more energy" says the guide for this 2 mile walk.
With two Book Club friends completed this circular route today, finishing with nice lunch at the canalside cafe. Took about 1 1/2 hours, further than I have been for a while.
Stiffness diary Completed the walk at 12 noon.
Took very very strong anti-inflammatory (that I'm not prescribed!) at 2pm.
8pm. Still fine. Let's see what tomorrow brings as judging by the Tai Chi experience this muscle stiffness is taking 24 hours to kick in.
8am Saturday. Awake 18 hours after taking the ant-inflammatory; no stiffness. Fall asleep again till 11am, minor stiffness in right ankle joint and left hand. Minor stiffness in neck. Apart from that very good 21 hours later.
Suggestive that a decent anti-inflammatory that wont harm my liver or re-activate my Hep B would keep my pain and mobility levels to relatively normal.
