I’m new too! Was back at work today but did manage a walk round the block at lunchtime and have done an hour’s training tonight. I guess we literally have to take it one step at a time! (Sorry!)

I fit in a walk today at lunch too. Good thing because I was pooped for my first day back at work by the time I got home.

Hey - that's great. Stairs really get the heart pumping.

There's a couplet in Urdu that I am reminded of which goes like this:

"Manzil dhoor, safar hai lambi, kuch door chalkar dekhaen

Kuch tum bhi badalkar dekho, kuch ham bhi badalkar dekhaen"

(The destination is far, the journey is long, lets walk a while together

You change a little, I change a little and then lets see how it goes}

So, dear unlucky77, try not to worry and lets walk the path together!

Well it's at four , I've managed to walk outside, only round the block but will do it again tonight. Is there a pedometer app I can get on my phone to record my steps .

Well done for getting out! There are loads of apps, but another member will have to advise you of a good one - I'm a total technophobe I'm afraid, and count my steps as I walk! You could try the Active 10 app(?)
