Let’s Go Walking! Join me for a virtual walking support group
Many of you living with cancer or an autoimmune disease, like me, deal with daily fatigue. You know that exercise is so important to your health, but it’s so hard. There’s always an excuse: it’s too cold or hot, it’s going to rain or it’s raining, or it’s snowy and icy, or I just don’t want to. I, too, have all these excuses, but I have a new rescue dog who wants to go out and who doesn’t care about my excuses! And I’ve got traction devices for my boots.
Now I just need a walking group who will keep me accountable. People who say, ‘let’s go for a walk.’
And I thought: What about my virtual friends on MayoClinicConnect? And Mayo Clinic has an easy 12-week walking program to get us started! Here’s the link:
– Get walking with this 12-week walking schedule
So let’s form a virtual walking group. We can agree to walk every day and encourage each other through Connect. We can walk outdoors, in a mall, or in the red center, or in the hallways of our apartment building.
Who’s in? Who’s going to join me? Come on, Let’s Go Walking!

Becky, what a great idea. Count me in! Because of an existing lung condition causing shortness of breath beyond my cancer, the walking time frames for me are difficult. My goal is 10 minutes of walking without stopping, and hopefully building on that. Thanks for the motivation!
@becsbuddy Count me in! But like the old joke goes, I'll have to make it a loop and come back home…. Will do as much as my knee will let me!
Thanks for joining! If you can do only 10minutes, that will be great @1065408 ! Our goal is to just walk!
Sounds like a great idea!
@becsbuddy Sounds good I,ll be there
Let’s see if a few more want to join us and then we’ll get started! I’m so glad you all want to see if you can beat fatigue. Becky
Count me in! Shall we walk on the beach, under the palm trees, in the tropical breeze? Bring sunblock. The weather will not be chilly as it is 80’ today in Honolulu!
@starko That sounds just perfect!! Have enuf room for all of us? It’s only 31 here but the sun is shining and the snow looks beautiful!
Uh…. what’s snow??? Plenty of room for everyone! Come join me!
