I’ve been working really hard on making my back better and getting my strength back. I’ve not had great success – Hiking and walking are still causing a good amount of pain, but I’m trying to get back on my feet.
I’ve been walking nearly every day in my local park, sometimes with a pack on for practice.
This past weekend over the holiday weekend, we took two short day hikes to see how I would do….see the details under hikes.
I made it…which I guess can be considered a success, but I had a really hard time walking up hills and did experience quite a bit of pain and numbness.
So at this time, I plan on proceeding with simulator trial but I’m not giving up.
