I’ve been in a relationship with my body for all my life. Shocking, I know. But I’m sure most humans have the same story, although the length may vary.
Either way, it is perfectly normal to have certain expectations in the relationship, even, dare I say it to take said past performance for granted.
Until it doesn’t.
I’ve been walking for quite a few decades now, so I thought just adding a few steps here and there wouldn’t be a big deal. Right? I walk every day, the dog makes sure it happens twice a day. So stepping up as it were shouldn’t be a big deal.
Apparently, I was wrong.
On Friday, I nearly tumbled down a flight of stairs when my knee buckled. Did I heed such a warning sign? Nope. I went for a walk (shortened) after dinner then while climbing into a car twisted my knee.
Let’s just say, I didn’t walk much on Saturday. I actually used our office chair to get around, cuz wheels. Sunday was a little better, but I’ve been limping around and there’s still the pain. Oy, the pain.
After doing a bit of research, I realized I was out of shape, sure, that I had added too many steps too quickly (meh), but mostly it was the shoes. I bought a new pair without adequate support and let’s say the knee pain started long before the stair incident.
At least, that’s my story and the shoes aren’t denying it:D
Until next time.
