If you have followed my blog you know how I am "allergic" to exercise. Every time I decide I should exercise something happens. It doesn't help I hate getting sweaty. However I do need to lose weight and the older I get the harder it is to lose that weight. So I have decided to start walking again; but this time takes things slow.
We live at the bottom of a hill. There are three roads going up this hill, a road at the bottom and a road at the top. So I have decided to walk along the bottom road, up road one, along the top road, down road three, along the bottom road, then up and down road two. Sounds easy enough right?
So I did this route on Thursday morning, took me 21 minutes to do it. Going up the hill, thought I would die, recovered going down the hill, thought I'd die again going back up the hill, but recovered enough going back down to think I would live. As soon as I can manage this without thinking I am going to collapse on the side of the road, I will increase the ups and downs.
It's not much but it's a start. Plus if I go early enough (by 6am) not many people are up and can see me!! I was thinking of also doing it on a night around 8pm when it gets a bit cooler as well. We'll see, I don't want to commit too, to much to start with.
This about says it all:
