The 15 minute mile



Okay. If you are not particularly an exercise type and early in the morning you decide to do a 15 minute mile, on arthritic knees and toes , a bad back, nerve damage and neuropathy in ankles and legs....you are in pain! You don't even care about your sugar or what you'll have for breakfast because you want to take 5 Tylenol and sit in a tub of Epson salts all day.


Rant over. Pain not over. Ugh.

Kooka.  I'm very sorry you are having this type of discomfort.  While the 1-Mile Walk for 15 minutes helped me out of my stiffness and lack of balance, it doesn't mean it's for everybody.  I have been looking at many sit and exercise videos at YouTube.  Some are 5, 10, 15, 20 minute programs.  I don't know if you could tolerate sitting and exercising or not.  Please forgive me if I have offended you.  I would never do that intentionally.

Sending hugs.
