Rehab progress 33

Routine. That is what the workouts are approaching, much to my relief.

I have not experienced any untoward episodes in weeks. Settling down do a steady pace, I can easily crank out a half mile on the treadmill. I´m going to step things up a bit, increase the tempo and the length of my stride to cover more ground, because I think the treadmill is the best return for time spent.

I´m also covering more ground at home, walking around the yard. On Saturday, we travelled to a prospective contracting job site, South Willow Canyon, in the Stansbury Range. Part of the road was barricaded to vehicle traffic, so I hobbled on up the trail for about a mile or two. When I returned, my dad was just making motions to stir from a long nap and come to search for me. It was a long walk, but I did it - and without falling down. Not bad for a handicapped guy.

Thanks for updating your rehab status. I very much like reading your reports to see what's happening.

This IS good news! Keep up the great work. I especially like the part about lenghtening your stride and covering more ground. Sounds like advice we could all use.

Jim,
I'm trying to decide if your last paragraph contains a typo or not. Was Uncle Bill taking a long nap rather than a "log nap?" My first guess was this was a typo, but then I wondered if he might have been napping on a log or like a log? Either way, I'm so glad to hear that things are routine. We've had enough excitement, I think.

Rhonda,

My bad. Typos are gratuitous.
