Getting Older

I had a doctor appointment this week for my yearly physical. I have to get one to get my prescriptions refilled. So, I took the opportunity to mention some aches and pains I’ve ignored for months. My right knee and my left heel.

After x-rays I got an appointment for the knee at Sports Medicine. The doctor said it could be just a ‘bum’ knee, but gave me exercises to do to see if I can strengthen the knee so it doesn’t unexpectedly buckle again. Scary!! I’ve become afraid I’ll fall.

First day of exercises and I realize how out of shape I am. LOL Each one was 3 sets of 10. I managed 1 set of 10 of about half the exercises and I was exhausted.

I’m too young to be old. I will be pushing myself to get to those 3 sets of 10 of ALL of the exercises. When I go back in a month, I want the doctor to see I’ve been working at this.

Hoping for better exercising for me.

  1. Yes, you’re too young to be old. Take care and exercise to build up to three sets of ten. Here’s hoping the exercises is all you’ll need to get through your aches and pains. Cheers!
