Poling Update

As I reported earlier, I’ve learned about intentional walking… aka Fast walking. The goal is to get up to an hour a day… 3 or 4 times a week. So I was doing two laps around the block for John’s once around. But since implementing the poles’ John is able to walk faster, and I am pushed to keep up with him, so it has been super nice.

John says he can walk faster because he is putting his weight onto the poles which relieves his hip and leg pain. I have a walking partner and Pandora on my phone playing music from my pocket. The Distance we walked the last time was 1.25 mile. in 40 minutes. We have ventured further and further into our neighborhood. Life is good.

Sorry, I’ve been focusing on Christmas letters instead of writing on the blog… and I know, I somehow lost a bunch of links in the index that I need to fix. But I’m happy to report I think I am holding my own, quite well.

In May of 2018, I was diagnosed with Parkinson's. After researching, I believe the symptoms began to manifest themselves years prior to last year. The purpose for my blog is to share what I have learned (with an index) to save others time as they seek for answers about, symptoms, therapies [and alternative things to try], tools I use, Parkinsonisms, recipes, strategies, clinical studies, words of encouragement or just enjoy the photos or humor.
