You take it at your own speed dear friend. I know in my case the walking does so much good for me. The last time I dd walk I wasn't able to go any further than 2 miles. Besides the chest pains I am now having pain in my left leg again. It was blocked and stented in 2002. So I know that it is blocked again. Take care, Ally
