Anyone interested in keeping a fitness journal through the forum? We could post our workouts daily, encourage each other and share workout ideas. You can put as much or as little as you want.

You can also tell me what topics you need or want to know about. You might want to take a look at my article Keeping a Fitness Journal. It could give you some ideas on what you want to put in your own journal.

Keeping a Fitness Journal

Something new: Watch the Short Bouts of Exercise Journal and join in.

Okay I'll start first. Today I rode my recumbent bike for 20 minutes, while trying to keep my speed at a steady 13mph. My legs felt really heavy. I also practiced my current yoga sequence. I like to take a sequence and practice it for a few weeks or months then move on to a new one. After yoga I used my Miracle balls on my back and neck. It felt really good.

The actual exercise time was about an hour. My goals are to ride my bike longer each day while maintaining a regular yoga practice. I currently have several injuries so I am also doing PT strength exercises every other day.

Now it's your turn!

Terri, I am literally going from couch to 5k in 4 weeks. I was exercising, but fell off a month back. Now I'm back at it. I started off brisk walking on the treadmill for a mile yesterday. I will see what tonight holds when I get off work

Good luck Dianne. I have not worked out yet and it is 8:35pm. Lot's of meetings today but shouldn't use excuses. My husband will go to bed soon (early to bed, early to rise) and I will do some quiet yoga.

Who else wants to share?

Well I never made it to do my yoga. Felt bad about it. Thought about trying to make up for it yesterday but then realized it would be too much and not safe.

Yesterday I rode my bike 20 minutes and was able to raise the incline by 1. I did one of my strength workouts with dumbbells and exercise bands. I stretched afterwards. Total time 45 minutes.

What did you do yesterday or today? Don't be timid this is a safe place to share among friends.

Dear Terri,

You being the exercise expert ,so I come to you for advice.

In my case I have 8tears in the knees,fore now about7to8 years.5 years ago I was able to see specialists that I needed 2new knees.Atfter my 5 th arteries operation ,I
Joined a gym for 3 months,went well but got so bored I stopped.As far as replacing my knees,never heard about it again.

My question is what type ofexercice do you recommend to a case like mine.
Walk-pretty hard right now we have been living a cold stretch for a week and we are expected to have another week of at least minus 20 to 25 degrees.I forgot I am 66 years old.


Thanking inn advance
Loong

Dear Loong, You have come to the right place for advice on knees. I too have very poor knee health. I have had several operations and currently the outlook is for knee replacements at some point. I definitely identify with your pain.

Can you give me just a little more information about your situation:
-do you still have the gym membership and if so is there a pool?
-do you own a recumbent stationary bike or have access to one?
-do you want simple strengthening exercises you can do at home or more?

I began writing an answer to you but it became so long that I have decided to turn it into an article. However, I want to help you now so please get back to me with answers to the above questions and then I will be better able to advise you.

Thanks for your post. Talk to you real soon.

I'm still hoping some of you are going to join me. I hate exercising all by myself.

Today I did the yoga sequence that I have been working on. It is quite strengthening and helps me work on my balance. Then I did several Pilates exercises. Last of all I did some very relaxing yoga stretches. Total time apx. 45 minutes.

Terri,
I am looking forward to the article as well. It's great to have articles focused on problem areas for older adults including knees, shoulders, back issues...

I hope to get some exercise in today. I'm worried that I won't be ready for the 5K at the end of February.

I'm going to see if the gym is open today so hopefully I can get a Zumba class in today.

Dianne, that's not a bad idea, a book on focused problem areas. I could use all my personal experience, ha!

Today is Saturday and I normally take Saturday and Sunday off. So here I am resting today.
