Did It! I walked 4.23 miles in about 77 minutes. It was hot out despite waiting until the weather cooled down. I don’t particularly like to exercise outside on days like this, but I don’t want to exercise indoors, either. However, today I was determined to go for a walk or run, and I did.
It was over 90 degrees, and it felt like 100. The air was hard to breathe. I probably should have waited until later. When I worked in the emergency room, heat cramps or heat exhaustion were common on days like these. Fortunately, I had no symptoms of either though sweat was pouring off me like water.
Average HR 150; maximum HR 171
I was in zone 5 for 43% of the walk.
Post-exercise BP 123/98 HR 109
I did my exercise. What exercise did you do today?
