My Activity Tracking
My target 150 kms
Day 31So the final push did not come without complication. My heart decided to give me some grief and bust out some serious chest pains for close to an hour late last night resulting in a trip to emergency. All is well, nothing major going on just part of what I have. It’s not fun and can get a little scary but once it eased and some sleep I woke up a the same person as any other day.
Day 29Getting so close to doubling my goal Kms. 31kms on the bike today plus a PT session of boxing which has become one of my favourite things to do.
Day 28Today I hit a new km goal of 30kms on the bike. My muscles are feeling it a little today but my soul is full of joy and achievement. I never thought this could be possible.
Day 21Physical exercise has always been part of my life but mostly through horses. I haven’t really set myself such a personal physical challenge like this before and I am so pleased I did. I am loving it. I am enjoying things I never thought I would like rowing on a water rowing and riding a bike. Sometimes it’s just about taking that first step 😊
Day 20Each week I am getting stronger and im able to do things I thought possible, like riding a bike 17kms. The first ride was hard but I have just chipped away at it.
Day 10I cannot thank everyone enough for all the amazing support and encouragement. Physical exercise in this format has been difficult at times for me. This year has thrown many challenges at me and each one has made me stronger to finally getting to this point.
Day 6I tried a few different things the last five days and to my surprise riding a bike is pretty fun. Good for the legs and great for the soul.
Day 3I thought it would be good to share some of the ups and down’s of my heart journey so far.
I’ve taken on a challenge to Do it for Heart!
I was diagnosed with Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy at the age of 28 (2008) in which an ICD was implanted to help manage my disease. In 2009 I suffered a cardiac arrest and this tiny little device saved my life. Something I will be forever greatful for.
At the start of this year I had a few setbacks with my condition in which some scary options were presented. While going through some medication changes I had an unfortunate accident off a horse resulting in a crush injury, having part of my quad muscle removed.
Physical exercise has been my saviour. It’s reiterated how important heart health is for everyone.
