51: starting out
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
