Exercise: Did It!

Did It! I walked over 5 miles in an hour an half. It felt glorious to be out enjoying the day. I challenged myself to dream the impossible, and you know what I did. I also learned something about pain. It’s not always a bad thing when you exercise. The walk started with steadily increasing pain in my right hip and rising heart rate. When the pain started in the left leg, I felt a sense of relief because I knew it was a pain I could walk-out. By the end of the walk, I had no pain and simply joy and pleasure in knowing I did it!

Post-exercise BP 121/99, P125.
Average HR 156; maximum HR 175.

I did mine. What exercise did you do today?
