October 100 Mile Challange!



Recommended Posts

You know.. Ok this might sound weird and long winded...

But the knee pain reminds me about my hip pain at about a month out from surgery.

I have a bum hip and have pins in it. But it doesn't really bother me I've had them for years.

But all of a sudden a month after surgery, for about a month it was so bad I could hardly walk somedays. I though my hip was coming out of the socket and the doctors tool X-rays and everything but it was ok.. I came here and did a search about hip pain joint pain and sure enough tons of posts about it. After reading and talking to several people I wonder if "weak" areas become painful again for a little while because our center of gravity, posture is changing as we lose a lot in those early days?

By the way my pain magically went away never to return..

Ok I know that made now sense but I just saw two of you with bum knees .

Same thing happened to me but it was my lower back. I assumed it was exactly what you said.....change in center of gravity. Eventually it went away and never bothered me again.

My husband's hip's been bothering him too. I told him about your hip from your post a while ago. Hoping his goes away like yours did. Kills me to see him in pain.

My knee pain comes and goes. I have had 2 surgeries on it and had problems with them since I was a kid. The pain in my knees and ankle have just become a part of life for me. Sad to say, but I am used to it. I just rest it a little when it acts up and then go back at it.

Thanks for the encouragement guys. I've had three flare ups this month which I only realize because I'm doing the challenge and every day I can't exercise reduces my chances of meeting my goals. But on the other hand, I'm more active on the days I don't have a flare up so I'm trying to see the positive in that. It's also possible I'm overdoing a bit.

Who me?? No! Hard to believe right?

HI all! I've been MIA for a few days...I have been really under the weather for a couple of weeks. But, my total as of Friday was 92 miles. I'm determined to get to my 125 mile goal for the month. I will give it all I got over the next four days! Good job everyone. I can't wait to set a goal for November.

Glad I got some big miles in yesterday because today is going to be zero unless I can count air miles on my flight home. :)

Was able to get in 5.3 miles walking yesterday. Total 152.9. I wont' likely see that number again until it warms up. I've found that <36 degrees is brutal. Have a great finish to the month everyone!

I'll make my 50 by the end of the month. I have been walking every day being very good patient. Has anyone volunteered to start the November thread. I can do it if no one else has volunteered. I seem to have plenty of time on my hands right now. Totally not used to that at all.

Gamegirl, I am feeling great. No gas pains, no pain meds today. I had two leak tests on Saturday and passed both. Water never tasted so good in all my life. Came home Sunday afternoon from the hospital. I am out walking with my husband or grand children. Right now they walk faster than I do, so I have to remind them to walk slow and they slow down.

I will have to search for the November challenge. If I can't find it, I will let you know. I am happy to be healing and home.

Dang flare up. I only got 1.2 miles today and YES I am claiming the .2 part too! 54.2. Worried I won't be able to make my stretch goal of 60 with this stupid sh-- RA!

Oh big whoop I got .6 miles today. 54.8.

I don't know what to set my November goal at because I don't even know if I will make my second October goal. First oct goal was 40, second was 60.

(This sounds like a math problem). Therefore November should be..??
