    This morning I swam. I now swim differently due to SPS creating spasticity in my feet and shins. I swim freestyle for a bit until the feet act up, then I swim breast stroke without moving my legs or feet, and by going slower, its less of a drag on the feet. So, I cannot do a 1/2 mile, but I am doing , still, 27 minutes of a good cardiovascular workout and arm work out.

    Then the trick is to get to the shower with my spasticity. I found that putting on my sox will cause a spasm after the shower, so now I wait until I can be at the bed and slowly move them over the feet.

    Today I swam 27 minutes. Tricky with spasticity
    Yesterday I walked 1100 steps, mostly after 2pm due to meds.

    Sunshine, in spite of all your problems you do so well. I have only been to 1100 steps or close maybe 3 times this month. I have tried, but the next day it is not worth it. You and Agate amaze me.

    Itís not just effort, its the disease, some days one cannot walk at all, lucky to sit up, other days, plenty of walking.
