Can I do this?


Recommended Posts

I’m 45 years old and trying to get in better shape. My son tore his acl last year and is trying to get back in shape for football season. I made him a promise that I would do this with him. The problem is I can only go about 30 seconds until my heart rate hits about 160 or 170 and I have to walk. Is this normal?? Should I just keep doing week 1 until I can go the full 60 seconds??

The number one thing to remember is that your health supersedes anything the app wants you to do.

I am not a doctor, but I would recommend that you research to see what your target heart rate should be for your age and health. To me, it seems high. If I were in your shoes, I would do fast walking instead of running, until I was able to run with a healthy heart rate.
