When I last posted about this, I had switched from trying to do 10+ minutes on the treadmill 3 times a week to 2 or 3 5-minute sessions. That was in July. Since then
- I have changed to 6, 7, and now 8 minute sessions.
- Continue to do 2 or 3 sessions, 3 days a week.
- Slowed my treadmill down to the absurdly slow 0.5 miles per hour. My back and thighs do not like walking this slow; OTOH, my cardiovascular system likes it since I’m down in the aerobic range.
- I’m stretching my back and quads between treadmill sessions.
And…I am almost afraid to jinx things…but I am now finding it easier to move around in general? I don’t walk so slowly if I’m just (for example) going to the laundry room, but it’s still easier.
It’s progress. I am very pleased by this.
