@retiredteacher Hi Carol,

I am planning on starting this week and I will probably make adjustments to the schedule. As I live in the midwest and we are beginning to have colder weather I may look for an inside walking path and because of heart valve problems, Parkinson's and a rare form of cancer, I many cut the time down to 3/3/3 for the first five days and perhaps substitute a bike at the gym for one of those days. I'll keep you posted on my progress!

I will get started, though, I'm just getting off to a slower start!

@bb729. I think the hardest part is getting started. I have to get it fully in my head and then convince myself. Those first steps aren't easy. Absolutely adjust the time. You could do just the slow walking for a week or more. There is no magic in 5-5-5. The magic is in walking to feel stronger and healthier. Maybe you could do 1-2-1. Can you try that?
