Today I did three back to back water aerobics classes for a total of 150 minutes. I knew this would really skew my baseline for ActiveLink so I took my device off while I was in the water. I thought that that would flatten my activity level fo... Read more

Thursday, October 04, 2012      5 comments

My knees are feeling better. I did a lot of walking yesterday but it was at a much slower pace. The result was a big reduction in my pain level. My guess is that I walked even faster than I originally thought on Monday. Today I also did quit... Read more
