I have a family history of heart trouble. And I've had a TIA or mini stroke. My cholesterol is OK but my doc wants it lower. And I'm somewhat overweight.
I am not a spring chicken if you know what I mean. I'm a grandma. I can't get out there and really get my heartrate going like you younger folks. I do go out and walk the neighborhood. I try to get out 3 or 4 times a week. And I can only go for about 30 minutes.
My heart rate doesn't get up very much. I don't feel breathless or anything like that.
So do you think it's doing any good at all for my heart? Am I only wasting my time?
