Another 0.72 miles

My wife and I attended the LDS Temple this morning, and then we went walking around the block. I was tired when we left for walking, and I was tired during the walk. I walk slowly, and it took me about 25 minutes to complete the 0.72 miles.

The sky was nice this morning when we left for the temple, but it was overcast when we started walking. We no longer have secondary water for our flowers and veggies, so I'm hoping we get some rain. We will be without secondary water until mid May of next year.

Did about 0.72 miles

Judy and I went around the block, and I increased my run by one house or about 0.1 miles (round trip). Judy stopped to talk with a neighbor, and I kept on walking. She caught up with me before we reached home. As I get stronger, I.m finding I walk a bit faster.

Did another 0.62 miles

In late morning, I walked around the block for another 0.62 miles. My wife, Judy, started a few minutes later than I did, and she almost caught up with me. I arrived home a couple of minutes before she did. The temperature was in the 50s while I walked, and it was nice to be outside.

My feet felt fine yesterday and during the walk today. The Rhus Tox remedy is doing fine.

Did 0.62 miles again

My wife and I went walking between sessions of the conference of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS). My wife stopped to talk with a neighbor, and I went ahead and completed my walk around the block. I had expected my wife to catch up with me since she can walk fast, but she didn't catch up. She came home about 5 minutes after I came home.

My feet felt fine during the walk today -- no weak feelings in my feet. I had a slight weakness in my right foot, but the weakness went away after I had walked around the house for a few minutes. I took a lot of Rhus Tox yesterday. I'm hoping that after 2 or 3 weeks, I won't need Rhus Tox anymore, because my feet will be stronger. Rhus Tox is a homeopathy remedy, and there is no possibility of one becoming addicted to it.

Rhus Tox Remedy is OK

When I awoke this morning, my feet felt pretty good. There was just a small tinge of weakness, and as soon as  I walked a bit, this tinge was gone. The Rhus Tox remedy seems to be doing its job with the "rusty gate" syndrome.

Did 0.6 miles

Instead of doing a loop, we did an out-back for 0.6 miles. We had a light sprinkle earlier in the morning, but the rain was gone by the time we went out walking. My right ankle felt weak -- no pain just weakness.

This weakness is similar to that felt when I first started running 42 years ago and was the reason I started running.  The weakness I felt then and now indicates weak muscles in my feet. The weakness is felt when I first start walking and goes away as I continue walking. This is known as the "rusty gate" syndrome. The gate is hard to push to start the opening, but after the gate starts moving, it moves more freely. In other words, the symptom of this weakness is that movement improves things. I am thus taking Rhus Tox to strengthen my muscles. This remedy was very helpful 42 years ago.

Another week of 0.62 miles

Judy and I went walking in mid-morning. I went in the morning while I was still fresh from a nights sleep. I think I was less tired than when I went in the evening, but the difference wasn't great. The temperature was in the low 60s (F). Rain is forecaste for tomorrow.
