Talkin' walkin'

This week is my fourth week of doing yoga on M/W/F and swimming on Tu/Th, except for Monday 1/19. I decided to switch to these due to back pain, and I think the yoga's helping with that. My lower back definitely feels much better the rest of the day on a yoga day.

I added some short afternoon walks a couple of days the week before last, and I think I need to add a few more. Lately my ankles and calves bother me a bit, and I don't think it's because they're overused, but underused. Back before I started the whole walking adventures in the first place, my ankles bothered me a lot. I was afraid to get started, figuring they'd hurt even more. The opposite was true, though. The activity made them better.

It was easy to get into the yoga and swimming routine and take a break from walking because the Everett walking choices aren't as great as the Seattle ones, but they're important, so they're coming back. I think I also need to throw a couple of new yoga videos into the mix. I know the one I'm doing too well and I get a little impatient while waiting for her to move on to the next thing. I suppose I can just do the moves for that much longer.

Edit to add:
Isn't it funny that I took a break from walking because my back hurt and that made my ankles hurt?
