I have been walking for about 7 weeks. 3-4 times a week. After about 20 minutes I am still out of breath even though I don't walk very fast, and I need a break in between. by the time I get home I feel like I cannot walk any further. I never walk more than 35 minutes each way. I feel just as out of shape as when I started.
I don't live on a bus line so if I want to go anywhere this walk is necessary. Before my lifestyle change I rarely went anywhere because I don't drive and I didn't want to do the 'dreaded' walk.
I go to my dr. every 3 months because of chronic back pain, and he has done blood tests on me to make sure every thing is ok and it is. I just don't understand why my stamina is not improving.
