    My Usual Daily Training

    I am recovering from a flu right now. I am doing the foundation program every morning. I work all day in a factory where I walk lots, up to 6 km per day. In the evening I enjoy doing some strength training with bodyweight or dumbbells and flexibility training like Yoga and stretching exercises for any where from 20 minutes to an hour, depending on my energy levels. I also go for a daily walk or bicycle ride after work for 30 or so minutes. My goal is Cardiac Rehabilitation and Shoulder Rehabilitation. I have had issues with both these things and my reason for exercising is probably much different than most. I train to live a strong, happy, active life to the best of my abilities. That's Monday to Friday. Weekends I do longer walks or bicycle rides and sometimes some cardio kickboxing if it's nasty outside.

    Cowtownbaldie ... neat name!
    I'm sure you think you are old for this forum. Maybe older than the average, but a few are older.
    And doing cardio-rehab as well. I just finished Cardio Go Day 21 and will be seeing a Cardiologist on Monday. My 1-year checkup.
    So ... a few of us know where you are at.
    Let us know how you are doing.

      Thank you DaithiMeyer. I am glad I am not alone and have people who understand. I see my Cardiologist Monday for my 6 year check up after a battery of tests I have recently done. I will let you all know how I am doing after my appointment. Thanks.

        Cowtownbaldie, the important thing is to find way to make that rehabilitation effort your lifestyle. Keep us updated.

          I just got back from the Cardiologist...good news. He says that there is no significant worsening of the Atherosclerosis and that the stent they implanted 6 years ago is still good. Also, my valves are good. I am glad they did more advanced testing to show this. He is reducing my medications and changing one because they are very strong and too strong for someone who's heart disease is not significant. They will continue to monitor me annually with stress testing etc and make sure that I am still good in January. I am to continue exercising daily and eating mostly vegetables, fruits & grains with some fish and poultry and to avoid too many eggs or red meat and pork.

          So this makes me happy and I am going to continue on with moderation in my diet and exercising to stay strong!

ID:	569641I enjoyed a nice ride on my bicycle this evening for a half hour. An exceptional workout because I ride an old style cruiser bicycle. Heavy and only one speed. I have owned road bikes, mountain bikes and now I have a "comfort" bike.

                  Ha, ha. I would say good for trip to the corner store or around the city...bikepacking...I would for sure choose a rig with gears and a little lighter too than this 45 pound hunk of beautiful steel. It serves it's purpose of just riding around the community bike paths and keeping the old legs toned up and heart pumping. Not an exceptional bicycle by any means but for me it's what I need right now.
