Strangely enough, it appears as if I have been post covid longer than I have been. I keep forgetting that I came out of isolation just a week ago yesterday.
I say this because I am a bit run down and achy; the back and glute: I would not say that I am back to square 1: far from it. But I am back to where I was in, well, maybe August/September, though I better know how to brace when I walk.
That is something to keep in mind about COVID: even those who were almost asymptomatic report some flare up of old injuries. I HAD symptoms (though never bad O2) and over the past 2-3 weeks: old frequent urination, heartburn, ache in back, some radiating pain, and a general overall “background” arthritic ache.
If you are an older athlete with a history of injuries and you get COVID to the degree that I did, your training will be set back.
Today: it was 3 F when I walked (after PT)
Then later I followed it with a commuter walk of 1.3 miles in 22 minutes. (17 minutes pace)
