Today, for the first time in years, I walked a mile. Not only did I walk a mile, but I did it with my son. We dragged our dogs along with us. His dog Katie and my dog Obie just loved it! I am pretty proud of myself and am only a little bit sore!
For any of you that do not read my blog on a regular basis, I had a heart attack the day after Christmas. I started Cardio Rehab not long ago. I have had two educational classes and two exercise classes. Today will be my third exercise class. They are putting me on the treadmill now. I started at my last class with 1.5 and they increased me quite quickly to 2.2. After a few minutes of that, my chest felt funny and my heart felt as though It was fluttering. I got dizzy and they took me off immediately. I am hooked up to an EKG monitor so they looked to see what was up. My heart was adding an extra beat for some reason. This happens when I am nervous (since my heart attack) and now apparently when I am exercising and nervous I guess? They were not too worried and plan on watching me. We’ll see if we can get this old body into shape some how!!
I was searching around for a walking clipart to put in this post and came across an interesting woman. Here’s a link to her site…Walking ….I thought I would share it. I will be reading much more and maybe even sign up. Hope all is well with you friendly bloggers. I am not up to 100% yet but slowly getting there. My son has been here for a couple of days visiting and hubby and I have enjoyed that. He and hubby have been playing a lot of Modern Warfare II on the Xbox360. It’s been fun watching the two of them. As a matter of fact, he is sitting behind me right now playing the game and complaining about his team he is playing with online!! Apparently they are not cooperating and he’s a little ticked at them cause I am hearing some *^@# cursing going on!
He’s killing bad guys I think…..
