Walked another 0.62 miles again

My wife and I walked around our neighborhood again, going out in the late evening as the sun was going down. I had an appointment yesterday with a nurse, and she said to walk but not run until my body has healed from the minor surgery to put a pacemaker in my body. She said they are concerned that if I run I might trip and fall, causing my left arm to take the force of the fall and possibly cause the pacemaker wires to pull out from my heart. She said I could walk as much as I wanted, because the risk of a fall is lower than if I run.
