And...it wasn't bad. I still have that thing where my lower back tightens up more and more with each step, until I am a mass of pain, but it was manageable this morning. I didn't have to stop and stretch it out, at least, unlike some mornings.
All in all, not a bad walk. Granted, I only live 8 minutes (3 blocks) from my office, but we're talking baby steps here, people.
My routine will be disrupted this week because tomorrow I am flying to New York City on business. I am dreading the whole airport / security / squishing my big ol' self into airplane seats thing. I am also dreading getting around town, and hoping that the partner with whom I am travelling does not want to walk to all our meetings and sessions, as I don't think I can physically handle it. I hate being this way - too concerned about my physical limitations, to properly enjoy the boondoggle. I used to love traveling and the adventure of it all. Now? Not so much - travel puts all my limitations into sharp relief.
