Challenge Updates

Hopefully the comments link should work properly now. I've been told that it can be problematic.

Now on to the challenge and some good news!

Challenge:
So far my routine has been going well. I didn't get to do anything Monday because I got really busy. But I did do a bit of walking throughout my day so that was something.  Dragon Boating is getting better. Sunday's practice was BRUTAL! It was reassuring to talk to a couple of the other women on the team that said that they were also sore from the workout and they've been doing it for a very long time. I found this video that sort of shows how the paddling works.



These people are fit. And they make it look really easy. I feel like the technique is starting to work for me, I just have to build up the strength to have my body keep up. I nearly paddled the whole practice yesterday.

So, let me hear about your challenge! What are you doing? How is it going? Have you noticed a difference yet?

Good News:
I had another exam with the chiropractor yesterday and got the results back today. I'll post up the nerve scan against the old one soon. Anyway, the prognosis is good. My nerve function and muscle function has improved quite a bit in my back (especially with the kinds of exercise I'm doing) and he thinks I'll be able to cut down my visits even more now since everything has improved. I can definitely tell that there's a difference. Before any kind of activity I might do had to be cut short because I was in pain. But strain and soreness are different than pain and I can deal with the former.
So that's the good news!
