Today I needed to work on projects so I didn’t go walking, but a friend was in the neighborhood and asked if I wanted to get lunch. Also, I’ve been logging more than five miles each day since I hurt myself, so I decided to give myself a day off. Doctor G is very happy that I am heeding his instructions so well, but likes to remind me that I am injured, and perhaps being a bit of an over-achiever with the “get more exercise” part… (who me?)

We happen to have been talking about taking a holiday to Vietnam later in the year, and, fittingly, ended up discussing logistics and other potential plans for our trip over spring rolls. My friend told me I absolutely HAD to keep getting better, so that I would be well enough to ride motorcycles over bumpy roads when we go traveling. It’s good to have things to look forward to, and goals!!
