:) Did it ha ha :)

Was there about 40 mins questionnaires first, showed me the gym they have treadmills, bikes, weights rowing machine plus loads more, just wait till I get on the treadmill will be no holding me back :) Then the 6 minute walk test started off well got slower and slower stopped a few time but did it at my pace in the end. The full 6 minutes was timed he was writing sats etc down all the time. He said you did better than I thought you would have whoo hoo ha ha was knackered mind he he. Huffing and puffing as you do but I did it! ;)

Start next Monday 1pm, they do a Monday and a Thursday so all is looking good, thank you all for your encouragement and support made me feel good today ;) xxx

  • I had to go up to 10LPM for 2 sessions when i had a chest infection. I didn't want to miss any sessions because if you miss 2 they put you off the course :-(. I really did enjoy the course but felt as though it was geared towards COPD. I don't think they had a clue what to do with me. I was checking my own sats and stopping when i needed to. Things that looked as though they should be easy proved quite difficult especially sit to stand and the leg raises. I loved the bike. I hope you enjoy the course Val, good luck xx

  • Thank you like the look of the treadmill ha ha x
