What Doesn’t Kill You

What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger.

I’ve been down in Savannah for my sisters wedding. Savannah is a walking town.

One of my sisters had her pedometer on her phone so I decided to turn my on after the first day of walking around.


The first day I had it on I got 7.05 miles. I know I walked more the first day… wish I had it on.


The next day it made a huge noise when I reached 10,000 steps. The day before I had my phone on silent so never noticed. By the time I made it back to my B&B I had walked 7.73 miles.


This was my last day in Savannah walking. I went 9.87 miles. Of course this was my “new record”.

I can’t tell you how much I normally walk. I mean I walk the dogs and do things. But I’m pretty sure I don’t walk in 10 miles a day…

My husband ever so nicely suggest I keep up the walking…

The walking has been hard on me. I have arthritis in my knees and right shoulder. I have blisters on my feet. Muscles I didn’t know I had ache. At first I soaked in the bath every night. I wanted to cry it hurt so bad. Now that I have walked more, have opened blisters I can’t say the pain has decreased. I can walk a bit farther before my knees hurt. My feet constantly hurt thanks to the blisters wedding shoes and new shoes problems.

Let’s just say if I keep this up the husky will love me…
