I had one of the most amazing experiences today on my way to work.......

I decided to walk to work (it is about 7 - 8 city blocks {sorry I know that doesn't help those that live outside the USA, um, about a 1/4 mile?} long walk). This was the first time I had walked to work since my surgery on June 9th (for those that do not know, it was a double bypass). Before the operation, I would sometimes get a late start and would push it a wee bit to get there on time, and end up huffing and puffing (many times having to slow down because of it and some pain) before I got to work.

Today, I started out feeling so good, I pressed it pretty hard to get there in record time. I was barely breathing any heavier then I had when I started, by the time I got to work. I can not say enough good about the therapy I received and and the exercise I continue to do to keep this wonderful state of being going. I was literally amazed !

I was also glad that, on Oct. 4th, I was able to give back a little to the therapy and research facility by going on their 4 mile walk. Not to brag, but I was able to raise about $355 dollars for the cause.

My spirits are peaked right about now :-)

That is really good Goodhart! I am pleased about that news!

Thanks, and as long as I get to keep up my cardio workouts, I will continue to feel as good as I do....

Wow, that's amazing GH. That pleases me greatly. My friends father whom is the peak of physical fitness for a 50 yr old, (he does a substantial work out every day including weights, 5km run etc.) received news that he would need a quadruple bypass. The heart is such a fickle thing.
Goodhart (author)  Lftndbt9 years ago
Well, it isn't so much that the heart is so fickle, but the body's ability to process excess cholesterol is somewhat genetic. Some of that process we can improve on, but we are not all the same, so we each have a different "ability" in that area :-)

Good stuff, Goodhart, glad you're feeling better. Back to normal (or maybe even better-than-normal...)
Goodhart (author)  gmoon9 years ago
Oh yes, much better then normal :-) I needed that boot in the butt to get me back on the exercise track again....

Here's to the new normal!
Goodhart (author)  gmoon9 years ago
Yes indeed, and also L 'chayim!

Yay! Congrats Goodhart, good to know you're doing better. I had a bad day. Got a spark behind my welding helmet, immediately detached the stinger from the rod, but in my hurry ended up putting it on the grounded table and flashed myself. Ruined my whole piece of metal. Ugh!
Goodhart (author)  LinuxH4x0r9 years ago
Thank you. And sorry about your day. Living on, brings hope of better ones in the future :-)
