Exercise Changed to Walking

Well, by the end of April the rowing machine was worn out and unfixable except at a cost more than what it originally cost. I was very distraught. What about my exercise schedule? I've worked hard to gain some muscle, was I doomed to lose it?

Luckily, even with the rain and cold lasting much longer than usual here in Michigan, the road was clear so I began walking again. Now I've walked this road many, many times but not on a regular schedule, so I began again. Being a little obsessive-compulsive I've timed my walks and distance. I know where the 5 minute the 10, 15, and 20 minute walk markers are. I travel one mile per twenty minutes (sometimes less by a minute or two), and I have been doing 2 miles a day, and hope to continue doing it six days a week or ten miles per week. It takes 38 to 40 minutes.

Yet, my arms arenot working as vigorously as my legs as they did while rowing, so I'm doing 4 to 5 minute exercises with five pound weights every other day.

Hopefully, all of this will help improve my overall health and condition. I can probably walk through October, but which time I hope to have a new rowing machine to continue working throughout the winter.
