I am being restrained. I have started my gradual reintroduction of exercise today and, as usual, after my walk I am feeling all 'up and at 'em'. But this time will be different. I will ignore the SuperWoman feelings and NOT do any more than is in the programme. I will NOT fail because I make my CFS kick in!
Day 1: walk 1 mile at a steady pace.
Well, I walked 0.8 mile in 14 minutes 30 seconds, 109kcals.
It felt absolutely fine, the equivalent of 4 miles and hour, apparently a brisk pace. It didn't feel all that brisk, breathing rate increased but not too much and I did make an effort up the hill. So I think I will throw caution to the wind and add power arms on Tuesday. See how that goes.
The 0.8 is because I live in the middle of nowhere and have mapped out the local routes. The short, circular route is 0.8 of a mile. I can't remember which tree I noted to make it a full mile :)
I must take my Polar watch in for a new battery - might make it easier to see how much I have really done.
