Weekend of walking and lifting

I was worried that I had regressed…it was probably just the exercise bike.

I am in a quandary: how “hurt” am I?
Is this chronic..just something I have to live with?
Might it get better like it did so many years ago?
Should I not walk at all or swim and walk only a tiny amount?
If offered an invasive procedure: take it?

I don’t have pain at rest, but I do balk at walking short distances unless I can stretch first.

Saturday: I did the full PT and then did a few deadlifts downstairs: side was 100 percent painless with the third set: 10 x 144, 10 x 184, 10 x 224 (all beltless)

Then I walked:

Note the second walk (at the top) was 15:33 for the course that, well, measures longer at different times. Going by Google Maps, it was 1.16 in 15:33 which would mean 13:24 for that walk.

I iced afterward; some IT soreness.

Today: more PT, and two walks plus a third experimental walk:

The last walk, I took slowly and wore my new nylon weight belt; it mattered..a little. In each case, I was ready to stop but..had many moments of “normality.”
