I’ve listed my stats for the week below, for anyone who is interested. My target heart rate is supposed to be 125 and I’m needing to walk a lot to keep it down, so in fact most days I’m edging above it. I’ve added the pace so that you can see just how much walking I’m doing! The only time I’ve managed to stay in the right zone was on the elliptical trainer!
I’m curious to see what my results will be in another 11 weeks.
Today as I was walking by the canal I was overtaken by 2 ladies of my age and stature, red faced and gasping. I felt a bit silly,walking, completely restful and breathing normally but absolutely sure that my circulating cortisol would be much lower than theirs😊 Will I be as fast as them in 6 months? Who knows? but I’m not worried. They looked happy with their efforts, I felt happy with mine.
