Portola Point

Yesterday I did the Portola Point hike, a bit over two miles. I wasn't sure how I'd manage it.

A view of the hike:

From Portola Point hike

It took me about an hour and 25 minutes, longer than it has in the past. I stopped frequently to catch my breath. Initially I felt some pain in my legs and knees but it wasn't terrible so I kept on. I came to a time when my legs felt almost normal, a bit stiff but no real pain. Toward the end I felt some twinges but again, not that awful. I felt stiff and when I went to a movie later I had to work my right leg a bit after, to release the pain, get on with it.

Last night I took a couple of acetaminophen tablets to help me sleep and I slept well. No cramps, no shearing pains. Encouraging.
