I’ve surpassed my walking dream 🚶🏼♀️!!
I used to struggle to stand up, and now I realise things have drastically changed.
On a recent holiday, my husband and I walked a total of 81,802 steps in 6 days, including travelling days! When I worked out the distance, I was shocked that I walked a total of 35 miles across the six days I spent in Spain. If you averaged this out, it meant that I was walking over 5.5miles a day.
Now this coming from someone who couldn’t walk more than 50metres a few years back is impressive.
I can now also walk very quickly up the three flights of seafront steps that I used to see as an impossibility for my future. In fact I’ve even run up them a couple of times. What can I say I wanted to feel like Rocky 🤣 I still have a little high tachycardia on reaching the top, but so do most people, so I’m not sweating the norm, which also continues to shift for me.
Moving toward more and more exercise after being POTS tastic is a great feeling. Everything in our stride. Along with pacing, rest, and a sensible regime you too could transcend your boundaries, and manoeuvre through fatigue.
You wouldn’t even care if you were symptomatic still if you could do the things you love, so keep striving for them!
Here’s to you walking, or swimming, dancing, doing whatever you enjoy again…
