Last weekend I walked 4 miles non-stop! Most of it was on a dirt road with a slight incline.

It felt fantastic.

So have some massages and acupunture.

4 miles non-stop?!?! You animal!! I'll get there soon, but for now my body is readjusting to using both legs properly. Suprisingly enough, there's very little soreness today, and I plan to get what's left to go away by swimming.
I've already dropped 20 lbs. during this whole process, and I'd love to exercise about 25-30 more off. It can be done, but I need to be cautious about doing too much, too soon.
