Some useful information
This is what I've been trying to find, thank you! I want to start back slowly but I cannot maintain the pace of my old workouts, nor my walking DVDs just yet. I also can't do the full 30-45 minutes of the DVDs yet and hate stopping in the middle. But I do have a treadmill and this will help until both the weather and my stamina improves!!
Thank you for this great information.
Great article. I am starting over with my walking regimen following back surgery.
Just what I needed. I just got the OK to return to exercise after suffering a broken leg. 15 minutes will be a challenge, but I should be able to do it. Love having a plan. Thanks.
Thank you for the good information. I always thought that walks had to be lengthy in order to do any you good. After seeing your chart, I can imagine myself walking briskly for 5 minutes to start with and slowly working my way up to 30 minutes. Rome wasn't built in a day, right?
I thought I could combine a more intense walk with my (old) dog walking, but I'll do a separate slower walk with him at a slower pace. My walk will be just for me. Thanks again. Mary
After a several month lay-off, I guess I am a beginner again because I do not want to burn out!
Loved this article.
