This is by way of an clarification of why my running a blog is now more rare. It follows on from my before posts (see conclusion) about my serious osteoarthritis, ankle fusion surgical procedures and the demise this summer season of my mother.

Base line, I’m now a Ton older than I was when I 1st started this blog site

Earlier this month I celebrated my 68th birthday – and I can no for a longer period kid myself that I am a spring hen even if my experience and chin(!) have gone back to seeking like they did several many years ago!
An outing for a birthday deal with at Kew for my birthday

I am also having to operate very hard at equally:
  • exercising for recovery from my surgery
  • keeping in shape to reduce (ideally) the osteoarthritis in both of those my hips from obtaining worse.
As a result I am now completely fully commited to day by day training such as a walk which usually takes very a bit of time out of the day and makes me come to feel somewhat tired when I get back home. 
For the uninitiated:
My typical day-to-day training now usually means that:
  • I can now have my stick relatively than use it all the time. 
  • Furthermore walk more than I’ve been ready to do for a incredibly long time – so long as I have typical sit down breaks!
  • AND I can now walk up and down slopes which I could not do at all for a really considerable length of time right after surgery. I continue to have to stay clear of sideways slopes which are difficult with a rigid ankle!
But I however require a stick for uneven surfaces and for having up and down stairs.
Going for walks down a steep slope – slowly but surely – at Kew!
However I however undergo from remaining Really rigid at situations and practical experience big stability troubles when at dwelling. It’s quite odd – strolling now will make me experience standard, whilst I sometimes wrestle to wander at dwelling right after finding up from a seat!
In some cases I can incorporate training with going to art exhibitions – and I anticipate to be carrying out more of this about the winter as the weather receives even worse. The awesome factor about artwork galleries is they have seats!
Bottom line though – I have received substantially less time for blogging.
It truly is a very good willpower even though as it helps make me consider which is also great work out for the brain – so I won’t be supplying up. 
On the other hand the minimized price of running a blog is probable to go on for the foreseeable potential
Primarily due to the fact you can find no opportunity of my extreme osteoarthritis likely absent. But also for the reason that I want to get suit for and then recover from my upcoming surgical treatment – which is a shoulder replacement (which I’ve desired for the last 2 a long time!)
I now want to do the job out how I am likely to website although I shell out six months with my arm in a sling and then a have full bunch of new workouts to understand and do in the course of recovery! 
I am pondering irrespective of whether I must begin doing videos or podcasts and speaking the phrases instead than writing them! Anybody with any tips – I might love to listen to from you. (see get in touch with me)
