Pain and living with it

 So I have been in pain since Saturday. My knee/leg/back has been hurting in some combination since then. It changes, it move, it varies in intensity, but it's there. Yesterday I was getting spasms in my back - that was fun. But it has made me appreciate the fact that I generally live a pain free life. At 62 that is good to say. I do complain about moving and soreness, but this has taught me I have nothing to complain about. It has also made me consider that maybe running isn't the wise thing right now. Maybe I should really focus in on walking and hiking and leave the running until I am in a little better shape. I can live with that. I'm not out of it completely, just for now. So I need to give thanks that I live basically pain free and I need to build up to things and not just jump in. 

My hip opening challenge ended and I actually stopped doing them because I thought they might be making my leg/knee/back worse. I'm not sure that's true, but I'm going to the chiropractor today so I think I will start back in on them tonight. 

My steps have been on the low side because of my knee/hip/back and I'm okay with that. I've been limping/walking funny and I don't want to do that a lot because it will make things worse. So in the week I'm supposed to be adding more steps, I've actually gotten a whole lot less. It's okay, this too shall pass. 

Guess that's it. I'm trying to avoid starting my day because I want to relax. But the truth is I did  a whole lot of relaxing last weekend and I need to get my butt in gear. So I'm off to get something done.
