OK! America may be a “Home Of The Brave.” a necessity to live in the empire, but pretty much not “home of the smart.” Even some of our most ambitious and financially successful are not very smart. I believe “smart” means “wise and prudent,” not ambitious and financially successful which are most often the empire’s criteria, which is not very smart.
An update on my cardiac rehab now that I’m 2/3 through. It’s going quite well, according to the folks in charge. Using today as an example, did two separate sessions on the stationary bike of 15 minutes each at Level 2 (will be moving up to 2.5 or 3 next week), total “distance” of 4 miles; 5 laps of walking on the track, roughly 1/2 mile, which took 12 minutes; and the balance/cool down exercises at the end. The hour passes quickly, and I don’t know how we are going to fit in upper body strengthening which they want me to start next week within the time allowed.
Endurance up, speed up, feeling well, cardiologist pleased; all good. Hoping all have a safe and enjoyable holiday weekend.
That’s great news! They are packing that hour full! Maybe you’re supposed to do 4-minute miles? 🙂
6176 – Great news and thanks for the update.
Congrads, I can remember when I started making improvements. so much so that it was noticed. It feels so god when you are told you are improving! Such a up hill battle and OMG how tiring too! LOL you are asleep before the head hits the pillow…At a boy to Ya!
Thank you, rd, indy and fnord, your comments are appreciated more than you know. Today was tough (Thursday after Wednesday always is), but now I rest a few days, starting again on Monday. I’ll work a walk in over the weekend, and maybe more than one.
