My neck and shoulder injury is slowly improving. However, the injury makes getting Type O intense exercise a little difficult. I swam yesterday, and felt good while I was in the water, but I was a little stiff this morning. The stiffness worked itself out during the day, but it made me aware that the injury has a way to go before it is healed.
Tonight after church I decided to climb stairs. That would give be a good lower body aerobic workout inside where it is air-conditioned. If you are in the path of a hurricane, or if your weather is already starting to turn toward fall, you may not think that is a big deal. Our temperatures have been at or near 100 degrees for several days. It is oppressive just to walk outside the house.
The custodians at our church are friendly and helpful. But they have no idea why I climb stairs. They must go up and down the stairs all day in order to do their jobs, and it is beyond their comprehension why I would want to spend 30 minutes just going back and forth. I didn't try to explain the BTD, I just smiled and kept going.
