Bets are on, How far will I cover on my 6 minute walk test at the transplant clinic tomorrow?

so far I've covered 2 x 408 meters, 485 meters 495 meters 490 meters, 480 meters, all have been done off oxygen and sats normally drop down into the high 60s.

Every time I go I joke with the nurse saying this is the one where I break that 500 meter barrier but it does seem just out of my reach, as ever the eternal optimist in me is saying tomorrow will be the day. :)

come on dall you can do it!!!

(you'll just have to imagine 500 meters as 500 miles may have to come after transplant)

  • Hi Tony, I am with you all the way. Tomorrow is the day you will do it --positive thinking, and you have come so near to your target before, so I am rooting for you tomorrow. I will be looking for your post to tell us you have done it. I have no idea how they do it at the transplant clinic, I mean do you have to go flat out or take a nice steady pace? If you are allowed to pace yourself then you will do it. Big hugs for tomorrow and all the best. hugs xxx

  • Hi Huggs, you choose your own pace and go as far as you can in 6 minutes. I've always done my 6 minute walks without oxygen so that's how I do them now so I can compare how I am with other results.

    Thanks for the encouragement, with luck and a good tail wind hopefully I'll post 500 meters tomorrow. :)

    Tony xx

  • If you just keep mantra-ing Levi's, I reckon you will do 501. My suggestion for a tail wind would be beans on toast for lunch ................. there's always one to lower the tone ;) With you all the way :) xxx
