"High Intensity Training Aids Some Heart Patients"
 
" For people with coronary artery disease (CAD) who are basically in good condition, high-intensity interval training is a safe alternative to traditional cardiac rehab and may provide additional health benefits, according to Canadian researchers."
 
 
I thought this was an interesting article and since it's summertime and more people are on the go with the warm days and evenings, perhaps you could share what types of exercising that you do yourself for your heart, if you are able to participate in sports?, or at a local gym?, or even just at home on your treadmill?
 
Hugs, Teri cool

I personally try to keep moving, whether it's at my volunteer job, walking the floor with the birds, or doing housework...yesterday, I went into the pool and found that I couldn't exert too much effort, or it increased my chest discomfort and arm pain, but I floated and tried! lol

Hugs, Teri :)

My advice to anyone who can still put a few miles on themselves is:

GET A DOG! (or two)

They will make sure that you take walks. They have little built-in clocks, they whine, and they have beautiful pleading brown eyes. Who could resist?

And if they are big dogs, and you walk them on retractable leashes (where there are squirrels, or deer) you will build all the upper body and ab definition you could ever hope for - without a gym. And it's much more pleasant.

I went 5 miles a day for 25 years...unfortunately can't do it now, though. :-(

Good for you Teri - for trying, anyway! (we are pathetic, lol!) but we have good attitudes! eh? I'll challenge you to a turtle race!

hugs,
Oona

With the fluids I've been retaining, bet I could float longer! lol If I was a turtle though we could enjoy a siesta under the hood! :)

Hugs, Teri :)

Heidi, sounds like you do keep busy and keep yourself in good shape~that's excellent!!
 
I do have several flower gardens and in the past they really kept me busy...Mark helps a lot these days and I try and keep them watered.  tongue
