Now that the weather is getting better, walking outside is wonderful. I have been going
walking with a neighbor at least 5 days a week. We hold eachother accountable to make
sure we get our walk in. It has helped us both. We both walk at the same pace. She has
spinal stenosis and arthritis, so we understand the pain factor.
We started out slowly and we are now able to walk 1.6 miles to up to close to three.
I am a firm believer that exercise does help reduce pain. I have to pace myself and
on days where I'm flaring I'll only walk as far as I think is reasonable.
Walking with a friend does your mind and body good!
