Walking the Bridge

One of my favorite places to walk is the town of Crockett, California. I begin my walk from the east side of town over the the AL Zampa bridge and back. I try to do this walk at least 4 days a week if I’m up to it. Three of the six miles are uphill. The course I take climbs 190 feet in the first mile, then an additional 40 feet at the center span of the bridge. Miles 3.5 to 6.0 are up and down. . I usually take a 5 min stretch break on the north side of the bridge.. On a good day I can walk this course in 1:22.

Today I took 122 pictures of this course as I was walking it . Surprisingly it didn’t slow me down that much. One of these days I hope to post some videos of my treks.

Most frequently asked question

"Can you have an asthma attack with a normal sat reading"?
The answer is..YES!
While it's a little unusual to see a person with a perfect O2 sat of a 100% during a severe exacerbation, its pretty typical to see sats in the 94-97% range. The reason for this, is that asthma is a disease of the airways , not the alveoli where gas exchange takes place. Most asthmatics dont desaturate during the early stages of an attack,unless theres a secondary problem such as pneumonia. You have to be extremely ill with asthma if your sats are low.
