Back on the treadmill...

Today, for the first time in almost a year, I included the treadmill in my exercise routine.  The last time I did it, things were getting so bad that I couldn't even do 13 minutes, and the last 5 minutes of that were so bad that I knew it was only a matter of time until I broke my ankle.  Today I did 15 minutes (!), and though there were a couple of times when I dragged my toe, at no time did I have my heart in my throat, certain I was going to trip badly and hurt myself.

My left leg is getting stronger in other exercises, as well.  Small changes at a time, but it's great to see a trend that isn't downhill for a change.


  1. So fatigue is less of an issue as well as muscle coordination. Not bad.

    I look forward to a chance to ditch the "fatigue" (which is not an accurate description, given its severity in my situation at least).

    Best . . .

  2. How long ago were you "liberated" and what type of ms do you have? Good on ya!!

  3. I was liberated on April 29th. I was diagnosed with SPMS in 2004.
