Life Is Good

It has been 2.5 years since I had a mild stroke while golfing, leaving no side effects.
I was golfing two times a week and I walked the golf course. Being 67 years old at the time, I figured it was time to change my lifestyle.
I live in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada two blocks from a 650 acres area with many trails and paths. They lead to a 1.5 mile long beach area that I use 5 times per week. I power walk for 1 hour at a pace of 120 steps per minute, getting my heart rate to 100 - 120 beats.
There are also many trails in this area. The main one is called the Galloping Goose trail (I have no idea why they call it that). It is about 40 miles long and used for bike commuting, reacreational riding, walking and horseback riding. It passes through small towns and villages and no motorized vehicles are allowed. So there is no excuses for not staying in shape!
Many happy walking,and hiking days ahead.
