Yesterday my wife suggested we get a baseline for my stamina in a normal temperature environment. Sounded like a good idea to me so off to the mall we went.
It felt like 70-72 degrees as we started our walk around the perimeter. My pace was slow, but steady. By the time we were done, we walked ¾ of a mile and I did not need to rest once. I was quite happy considering that in the mid 80s heat I only made it 200 yards, had to stop and rest four times, and had to duck into an air conditioned building for a reprieve.
I’m hoping to greatly improve on this once I start water aerobics.
