After feeling so good on my last hike I decided to go on a much longer hike than I have been doing. Also, this was my first hike, with my wife, since she got back from visiting her father, and she was ready to get some exercise. It was a beautiful day and we didn’t feel like seeing any people, so we just decided to walk the forest roads.
I have to admit that I was almost entirely focused on walking in a way that wouldn’t bother my SI joint. I was looking at the beautiful forest but it definitely took a back seat to minimizing impact on my body. I was so glad that my back held out and it gave me some hope of things getting better.
