Having been inspired by posts from followers who mention casually that they work out for an hour a day, walk five miles, cycle, swim, etc I decided that my light housework and gardening was not nearly good enough 🤔 As walking and swimming aren't suitable for me I consulted our GP practice's physiotherapist about my problems with my right leg and decided an exercise cycle was just the thing to complement the exercises she gave me. So a shiny yellow exercise cycle is dominating my dining room but I have a problem. I started off very gently, as advised, but I can't get my HR up to the suggested 105 BPM before my legs hurt and I have to stop 😫 I guess this is doing wonders for my weak leg but nothing for my fitness. Any suggestions? Do I just carry on as I am until my legs get stronger or is there anything I should do different?
