44 LAPS

For some time now I’ve been doing laps in my apartment most every morning. One such lap consists of walking from my bedroom, through the hall, living room and porch to the outside porch door and back. While it may sound boring to some, to my mind walking inside my apartment beats walking outside because I don’t have to push my portable oxygen alongside me while I walk.

At first I was only doing 10 such laps every morning. Then 10 laps became 15 and, not long thereafter, 15 laps became 20. But after being content with 20 laps a day for a while, I decided to challenge myself even more. As a result, 20 laps became 30 and there I stayed for the last couple of months.

Yesterday, however, I got to 30 laps and suddenly decided to try to go further. Then, after doing 35 laps I said to myself, “What the heck, might as well do 40”, and I did. Today I did 40 laps again and then I decided to try and figure out how far I had actually walked.

First I carefully counted how many steps it took me to walk from the bedroom to the outside porch door and back. Then I had someone else measure how far I walked in one step. Using that information I was able to calculate how far I’d walked in one lap and then in 40 laps. Amazingly, I found out that if I had walked only 4 more laps I would have walked a mile! 

So that’s my new goal – 44 laps or one mile a day. Do you have an exercise goal?

  3. Emphysema Treatment ought to include, obviously, eliminating exposure to emphysema-bringing about poisons. This includes more than the evasion of tobacco smoke. You ought to look at your everyday life and check for different wellsprings of poisons.

  4. This is what I do too. I dislike walking outside anymore. The last few times I did it, I walked far and enjoyed it, but ended up in a neighborhood with nosy people who maybe wondered why I was there (or didn't like my looks) and everyone made a point of stopping me to talk. It was some passive aggressive thing, I'm sure. People don't stop runners or bikers every few minutes. It's rude to stop people who are exercising.

  7. For people suffering from COPD, it is important for them to know that they are not alone. I was also a victim.
    I had experienced shortness of breath, coughing, recurring chest infections and bronchitis. But I didn’t realize that I had COPD until I went to my doctor and was diagnosed with COPD. The first thing I did was get myself informed. Having COPD hasn’t slowed me down. Even though I had COPD I still played golf and involved myself in different excercise though I started smoking at 19 years of age I smoked almost a pack a day. The doctor had told me to quit smoking, it was frightening and frustrating, I thought it was to avoid stress. I learned about Dr. Lance Herbal Medicine from a friend. Now my life has turned around for good because I consider myself most fortunate.
    There are so many people out there who have COPD and don’t realize it.
    If you have COPD, many things are available to help you live a full, comfortable life don’t be ashamed of it.
    I can’t speak for everyone. I can guarantee that this Herbal Medicine will work for you and I suggest you try it. It has done wonders for me. contact him on lancejustin54@gmail.com for more information and advice.
