As I’ve mentioned in my prior postings, I would be down for a while after having a spinal simulator implanted to stop my radicular pain from nerve damage after a previous back surgery. The implant was successful, and my simulator has been working well. I’m to the point now where I’m still restricted on activity, but I feel good (the time where you can get in trouble because you feel like you can do more and hence can hurt yourself). I’m able to walk 4 miles easily and very excited to get back hiking. My date to be able to do some light hiking is the end of February and what makes it even harder is that its winter and I love being in the woods when its cold.
I’ve definitely got my sights on some trails down the road but I will be starting from scratch again, small trails, easy hikes, etc.
I sure do miss being in the woods; however, my short hikes in my local city park do help ease the desire.
In the meantime, I’ve been visiting other blogs and admiring their stories and pictures — living thru proxy I suppose.
Never fail though, I’ll be out there again soon and will be able to take on more-challenging trails than before so stay tuned.
