Hi all,

Veronica, what a detailed description of your workout. It has really inspired me to get a treadmill. I'm so happy you feel it's helping. I think what's good is the attention to form. It fits with my belief in re-training-good form is more important in the long term than speed.

Yesterday, I was visiting a friend in a hospital. It felt so good to walk on a flat surface after a summer of lumpy terrain. I was able to pay attention to all the muscles in my foot and it really seemed to help. The other thing I do is a daily visualization exercise where I "walk" normally across a room. I do 50 paces and really concentrate on the left/right arm swinging and leg extensions. I'm planning to make this part of my morning routine before heading out the door to work.

Take care all,

Teena Marie
