Walk/run 36min, 5.1km!!! I was really pleased with that. I thought I might have lost a bit of my fitness because I haven't had a run for a while but I managed to run that fairly well. I walked pretty close to half I think. I wore my headphones and had upbeat music so when I walked I think I walked much faster than usual! :D That is my usual 50 minute walk and I did it in 36 mins. I am going to continue to walk with my walkman I think because that way I keep up the pace. Remembering back to when I was thin years ago I always used to walk with my walkman! Keeps my heart rate right up there! :D Actually come to think of it thats about the pace I was doing on the treadmill. A friend of mine used to be in the navy and he said they had to do 5ks in 40 mins in their fitness test. Well thats what he thought it was from trying to remember. So I have always aimed to get 5 ks in under 40 mins! I would like to think that the navy has to be fitter than what I can do!!!

That is excellent Rochelle. Good pace would have kept the old heart and lungs working.

I also walk with music and have actually got 40 min playlists set up with fast pace music to keep me motivated. I usually bop along at a reasonable pace singing to my music. I don't think I sing out loud but who knows...that could be why I get the funny stares. The pedometer is damn noisy too. Does everyone else's click with each step? I am guessing it is supposed to but people sure hear me coming!

35 mins walking. Today not feeling the best so cut it short.

rode to work and back.

I'm hoping the doctors don't tell me to stop exercising (I've discovered I have a heart murmur and need to have an echocardiogram to check why. The dodntod didn't tell me to stop exercising in the mean time so hopefully I'm good to keep going. Any medical people can fill me in...)

I'm not a medical expert but this is what I've just learned off the net.

(My brother-in-law lives with one he's had all his life and he's quite active as a postie and basketball player, he's 50)

Most murmurs don't mean anything is wrong, but sometimes it can be caused by defective heart valves.
A stenotic heart valve has a smaller-than-normal opening and can't open completely. A valve may also be unable to close completely. This leads to regurgitation, which is blood leaking backward through the valve when it should be closed.

Murmurs also can be caused by conditions such as pregnancy, fever, thyrotoxicosis (a diseased condition resulting from an overactive thyroid gland) or anemia (are your walks burning up more iron than your are consuming each day? and remember to eat 3 serves of protein per day as your heart muscle is made out of protein)

A diastolic murmur occurs when the heart muscle relaxes between beats. A systolic murmur occurs when the heart muscle contracts. Systolic murmurs are graded by intensity (loudness) from one to six. A grade 1/6 is very faint, heard only with a special effort. A grade 6/6 is extremely loud. It's heard with a stethoscope slightly removed from the chest.

Personally I'd give up walking until the doctor has given you the all clear.
I'm sure you'll be fine.

Yeah I learned that lot as well. I'm taking iron tablets and the doc checked by eyelids and said I don't look pale so anaemia is not it. The doc couldn't convince herself that it was a harmless murmur (they sound different when you sit up) hence the trip for more tests. Not sure what they'll say if it's a problem with the heart.
