My basic nightmare--a walk with a doctor

There is a new program called Walk with a Doc. This is a nonprofit in 148 cities, offering doctor-led walks in parks and malls.

The goal is to get people up to 150 minutes a week of moderate aerobic activity.

This was started by a cardiologist in Ohio. He gives a short talk on some health subject and then takes people's blood pressure and gives them a pedometer.

And they are off! (I guess the physician comes in handy if something "happens" to a walker.)

I once had to walk with a cardiologist--all around his office building to see if a med he had given me had made me short of breath.

It apparently had worn off.
