Have you heard them where you are yet?
A couple of my friends have asked me if I'm still walking and keeping track of the miles.
The answer is no for now. It's a long story, but in a boring nutshell it has to do with the fact that both my knee and ankle have been really painful for the last two months. I know that going up and down the ladder repeatedly during the day is a big factor. I can't stop working, so for now I have stopped walking.
I went to the doctor for the knee awhile back and he said it was Arthritis. He put me on an anti-inflammatory that really did a number on my stomach. At one point last month my ankle was so swollen in the evening that it looked like I had an egg tucked under the skin. Ice packs have helped a great deal.
I also think I might have a bit of Gout. The doc says no, but I know that my joints are much worse when I drink wine, eat red meat, and a variety of other foods. So for the month of August I have been abstaining. The ankle is better. I'm hoping to get back on the treadmill soon.
