    51: starting out

    Hi,

    After 30 years of very little exercize (short walks)
    I've been commuting to work (30 minute ride) for
    a few months and have liked it from the start.

    having got this far I've developed an interest in getting
    healthier, eating better - all the things my wife has
    been trying to tell me about for the last 20 yrs!!

    I got a HRM the other day and discover I spend 90%
    of my ride between 70% and 85% of my maximum
    heart rate (according to the manual). So that's about
    an hour a day in total. Is this OK or am I pushing too hard?

    Thanks for any advice you might have for someone just
    starting out at 51

    Howdy. Glad to see proof that fun can be had by all. If you haven't already you might want to post your question in the 50plus forum.
