I love walking around downtown Raleigh. You never know what you will see or who you will come across. Yesterday, near the Governor's mansion, I came across Robert. He started walking when he saw me start walking and he's doing it everyday. WTG Roberto!
Well, today is Tuesday, and that means giving you a third exercise of the week. Remember, these exercises are for beginners. They are meant to help strengthen the areas that may hurt the most when you start exercising again.
Week 1 was all about the knees, since they are usually the first thing to hurt. Last week, we worked on stretching the back and hamstrings. Today, we look at strengthening the muscles of the foot and ankle. You can see how to do it in the video below.

My athletic trainer tells me that it won't just help your balance, but it can help with the bottoms of your feet when they start to ache too.
This is Week 3 and hopefully you're at least moving. That's what this is all about.
For me, the goal is 10,000 per day for a month. Set yours for whatever is realistic to you, and just get going.
If you can't walk, do leg lifts. If you can't do those, find something that works and start doing it. No more excuses. Now I'm off to build up those steps.
Good luck and keep moving!
