I am 41 (soon to be 42) and lasted only 6 minutes.
 
the echo and ekg and bp all was good.  My heart rate got to where it should before the 9 minute mark.
 
I have read you should walk between 6-9 minutes online. 
 
Is this normal for a person who is a little overweight and doesn't work out??
 
 
Thanks
 
Susan

I answered your other post here.  I think it may be a good idea and sit down with your Doctor re what is normal for you and what is not.
 
I wish you the best.
