Yea, I got my walk in yesterday and increased it by 10 minutes. Gonna try to increase it every 2 weeks for a while until I get it up to an hour and then see what happens. Don't know if I'll ever get to the running stage. I'm just too old for shin splints and sore ankles and sore feet. And I might break a bone and it would take a long time to heal. Do those sound like good excuses to you? They do to me!!
I created a 30 minute play list with some oldies and really enjoyed it. I didn't even keep looking at the watch to see how long I'd been going like I usually did every 2 minutes wondering if the 20 minutes was up yet. When I was on the cruise there was an a cappella quartet that sang some of the oldies like, Rockin' Robin, Under the Boardwalk, Chain Gang, to name a few and I bought one of their CD's. I just "bopped" across the driveway singin' along. That is the neatest gadget. I also used the HRM for the first time and kept my heart rate between 133 and 147 most of the time. Was so anxious to see how many calories I'd burned and dumb me somehow reset the thing before I retrieved the info. Oh, well, will have to try again tomorrow. And I think I'll review the instructions to make sure I don't do that again.
I had a request to show where I walk so this is it.
All the way down one way (see kitty cat laying in the driveway?)
and back the other.
And all of this is in front of my cabin.
Course they probably meant the pretty place I walked last week but forgot to take my camera with me then but will definitely do it the next time I go. Do want to share that beautiful place with you.
