Walked a little more

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

I have decided that if I am so uncomfortable with walking 10,000 steps I should do enough to do 5,000 at an aerobic pace and keep going for as long as I am feeling fine. When I have a bad night or feel stressed sometimes the walking makes me feel better and sometimes it makes me feel worse.
I am going to work my way up to more steps at an aerobic pace and not worry about total steps. Maybe if I am so tired I need to stop and walk again later. Maybe I need to bring water with me.
I will pay with it.

    as above listen to your body if you need to stop then stop and maybe go out later, always bring water, you are doing great, it will get better when I first started I was only doing about 5,000 steps also. Good LUck have a great weekend!

    You have worked out this plan that will work for you. Congrats! We all need to do what we can do that works into our lifestyle. Have you looked into chair exercise DVDs? They are simply wonderful!

    I think that is a good idea. Just keep walking. You'll get stronger. Maybe just do your 5000 steps at aerobic pace and then just stroll for your cool down. 5000 steps is about 2 miles, isn't it? It's understandable that you would get tired after that distance. I think you are doing great!

    Listen to you body. It will tell you what you need to do. When I first started walking I could barely make it one mile. I took it slow, and didn't push myself past what I could handle. Now two months later I am walking faster and put on over 3.5 miles last Sunday morning. I still walk at a turtles pace, but I am still doing it.

    You can to.

    I think maybe you have been overdoing it. Perhaps a smaller number of steps, or miles..... and you will feel better.

    see you soon. I hope.
