I went out with my photography tutor yesterday to waterfowl viewing area. I was there before dawn with a Grande, Skinny 2-pump Vanilla latte, lol. Thank goodness Starbucks opens at 4 am! My tutor showed up not too long after that and we started taking pictures.
Unfortunately, the day was a bit cloudy but we did get some nice light here and there. I noticed that I was unsteady walking down the slopes. Slopes hardly worthy of mountain climbing gear though. The “slopes” were only 5 feet long, but my left knee isn’t exactly the most sturdy thing in the world, so I had to be careful. My tutor suggested I use my tripod as a walking stick to steady myself and that worked out nicely.
The good news is that I stood there for two solid hours, moving around from time to time of course, but that’s something I could’ve never done before my TKR. And after all that I went to the gym and had a 35 minute session on the spin bike and then hopped on the precor machine for almost 10. Whew, I was pooped, but mostly because we have this strange humidity in the bay area right now. Yes I’m a wimp. Give me back my dry heat, pleeeeease!
My knee is a bit sore today, but I’ll live. We have a fun event to look forward today. It’s the Bay Area Broadcast Legends luncheon in Berkeley. I can’t wait!
