Walking In Rossmoor May 2nd 2016
We walked several times post operation but frankly we decided the camera was not something we needed to mess with and we were concentrated on not getting tired and keeping up the pace.
We did not walk fast but were sustained! Just what the doctor ordered!
Did You Know? - Post heart surgery steps to take (pardon the pun)
- Make your exercises a regular/daily routine. Try to walk every day and gradually increase your distance over time.
- Instead of going for a straight distance, you may want to walk around your block several times so that you are always close to home.
- Don't worry about how fast you are walking, but concentrate on how much you are walking.
- Take someone with you the first few times you walk.

Icelandic Berg poppies

Native to subpolar regions of Europe, Asia and North America, and the mountains of Central Asia (but not in Iceland), Iceland poppies are hardy but short-lived perennials, often grown as biennials, that yield large, papery, bowl-shaped, lightly fragrant flowers supported by hairy, one foot, curved stems among feathery blue-green foliage 1-6 inches long. They were first described by botanists in 1759.
