I used to be a walker, until I became a runner. I have been a runner for 10 years, and two years ago I PRd a 5k at 23:15...not world class, but I could win my age group (54 at the time) or even Clydesdale group in most local races. I got my weight down by about 45 pounds or so...then had a minor but difficult injury for running. Then I had prostate cancer and surgery to deal with it. 6 months ago, I sprained my ankle while moving. Now I’m back to walking, but I can’t get into that 5-7 RPE range or even a “moderate” heart rate zone while walking. Mostly, right now, it’s because my ankles still hurt, but even before that, for me to get to a speed where I could get to a moderate heart rate or 5-7 RPE, I’d have to at least break into a jog...I’m not even breathing heavily. It’s great being pretty fit, to the point that walking briskly doesn’t even phase you anymore. But, it is a real struggle when you are recovering from injury to try to get to the moderate zone but cannot. What this means is that my fitness is going away, right before my eyes, and there isn’t much I can do about it. That said, I have been able to start back to a “slog” (slow, very slow jog) a couple times a week for about 3 weeks now, for a couple miles each time. My HR does get into moderate, but I cannot go to far because of the pain. Report
