80 degrees this morning, walk 34:53 minutes
Good to get back on walk this morning. Wind was up a little, and the air seemed relatively “heavy’ although the humidity was not that bad, around 64%
I’m not really all that knowledgeable about humidity. Sometimes it is 80 or 90% and really doesn’t feel like it. Other times, it is low but the air still feels heavy. Maybe there is a reason for the air to feel “heavy” that I don’t really understand.
Had my first therapy session yesterday that I am hoping will at least mitigate my coughing problem. Obviously I can’t really determine anything from the first visit, but there appears to be some hope that it will benefit some. I have some exercises (breathing exercises) that may be beneficial , I’ll see.
The profession must be a very secure one, I had to wait about a month for my first appointment, and the therapist was booked up for the next 3 weeks, so I am on a “wait list”.
Another dental appointment today. I always approach it with some dread (and rightfully so based on the past) of what the dentist will find and want to do. Hopefully it will be just a cleaning, a reminder (unfortunately never heeded) to “floss” etc with another appointment in six months. I do brush my teeth on regular basis but have avoided other dental routines that I probably need to follow.
I really have a hard time believing that Independence Day, with the knowledge that it marks the “half” of summer is only two and 1/2 weeks away.
I have started driving a bottle of “low calorie” Gatorade each morning. I don’t know if it helps or not, but it does seem to be a good practice. Years ago, I started drinking Gatorade anytime I got a cold and it seemed to help. No so much lately though.
Plan on buying a new pair of walking shoes, hopefully this weekend. My current pair have high mileage on them. They still feel reasonably good, but the last thing I need is foot problems.
The deterioration of shoes, like the life of a lot of things, seems to catch up slowly and then suddenly are worn out. . They are good and then one day they aren’t. I know there wasn’t a sudden change, just a gradual change until one day I suddenly notice they are’t as comfortable as they were or my feet hurt.
I also wear “walking shoes” for work now. Since we do a lot of walking, we can wear walking shoes in “reasonably good” condition. I generally wear walking shoes that are close to dress shoe in appearance, not the bright colored ones etc.
One problem with the walking shoes for work is I don’t keep track of my usage, so my first pair of “work” walking shoes could be getting worn out even though they seem to be ok. I am planning to keep track of their usage since I don’t want to develop foot problems as I noted before.
That’s it for now, Friday, December 15, 2018.
