As a Canadian, despite our very nice October, we knew the inevitable winter was coming. And with a cold snap, it has arrived.
And with it… Pain. Yes, it increases that everyday chronic pain level. That baseline pain level. It hurt to walk today even more than it has for the last few months. As I have had a flare up in my ankles for some unknown random annoying reason. That, hurt more today.
When I tried to exercise it was a venture that simply was not going to happen. I began and got nowhere fast due to the instant pain increase. When I stopped that ankle pain was even worse.
So Son of a Nutcracker indeed.
Deal with this every year though. I hope it will not interfere with my exercise too much. Maybe slow me down a bit I expect, but hopefully not too much.
But it is the season of the brittle coldness and pain. It is just a cold snap so far. We will get some better temperatures before it really gets brutal on us. Or so they say.
