Hi Bill.........I split whatever walking distance I was doing into two sessions; one in the morning, and then one in the early to mid-afternoon. if it was 2 miles, I go 1 + 1, and so forth as I added my distance. Too much at once, and you start to undue the benfits in my opinion, at least this soon after surgery.
Plus, ya gotta have time for those naps!!
Keep getting better.
