Surprise!

Saturday, May 01, 2010

Elsewhere I stated that my exercise regime would be sloooow due to recovering from a slipped disk. That pain in my lower back is better. The injury made my sciatica pain much worse, though-more constant with walking or standing.

Today I decided to get on my long neglected elliptical exercise bike. To my happy surprise, I found that the exercise DID NOT hurt!! I only did about ten minutes with some stretching to follow, but I plan on 15 tomorrow.

Now to figure out why the cable box and tv downstairs aren't operable. I want to be able to watch videos on CMT while I exercise!

    Wow! That is a lot of exercise coming off of a back problem. I am glad you found something that you can do. I have been sick this week and need to get back to exercise. I need to stay close to home for awhile until this sickness runs it course. I have an elliptical machine in the basement and when I do laundry, I get on the elliptical machine, do a little walking to cool down, wash or fold clothes, then do a little more. I had built up to 12 minutes at a time but probably lost that since I have been sick. Your blog encourages me to Get up and get at it!
