26 times 66 feet
By 7 a.m. it is 75+ degrees F with 90% humidity so now it is too hot to exercise by walking around my neighborhood. This is a problem because I have not been walking much inside since covid-19 curtailed my trips in the community. Now I walk laps from one end of my 66 foot long trailer to the other. It takes 26 laps x 66 feet to walk .32 of a mile (1,716 / 5,280 feet).
Fatigue ruins everything so I have to be serious about not letting disuse atrophy creep up on me.
Every time I do 2 laps I make 2 hash marks on a sticky note on my kitchen counter. Then I record the total for each day on a monthly calendar I keep on my kitchen table. Then I enter the daily totals in a Excel file on my computer. Finally I compute my monthly totals.
To stop looking down at my feet as I walk I look for sunlight in each room.
I could not afford to buy a ranch style house after my stroke. However, I love my 2 bedroom/2 bath trailer that has a full-sized laundry room all one floor. The central air conditioning and dishwasher are a bonus. homeafterstroke.blogspot.com
