20 minutes on some new machine at the gym (bastard son of a treadmill and a stepper and an elypitical), 5 minutes on the erg (recovering from injury), 20 minutes of physical therapy/strengthening for the right shoulder/lat/neck/rotator cuff (from an injury) and the left pec/rotator cuff (left over from surgery/implant 3+ years ago - never ends). Trying to save my knees so that I can actually do Tae Kwon Do tomorrow night rather than poop out early like last night because I'd run earlier in the day.

Tough getting old - especially on tamoxifen!

Hi!  Awesome exercise!  I love the description of the new gym machine!  

Lisa-the climbing didn't bother your arm or chest after mx?  

I did step aerobics 45 mins yesterday.  I wanted to walk the dog too but didn't have time.

I'm trying to think about what to do for exercise today....I'll post later!

Lorrie,

Climbing is actually the only thing that helps my chest feel less tight.   I do wear  a compression shirt and sleeves when I climb, but so far it has not caused my mild le to flare up.  When I started climbing again after my mast, I built up slowly, so as not to overwhelm my lymph system.  So far so good!  

I also had a total hip replacement a month before my inital bc diagnosis.  I think climbing has helped my recovery from that surgery too.  Now it is my non-surgical hip that bothers me.  Ah well . . .

I went to pilates this morning and am just about to go for my lunch hour walk. 

Cheers!

I am trying to lose weight so I am little overboard on the exercise.

In the morning I do a Leslie Sansone video that is a circuit/interval walking routine.  The walking is a two mile boosted walk that is interspersed with strength training with a resistance band.  I follow that with a half hour of firming (total body) floor exercises and stretching.

 In the afternoon I work out in my pool using aqua bars to strengthen my arms.

 After dinner I ride my bike for an hour.

Oh boy, this is a great thread. Especially since I'm JUST NOW getting serious about regular exercise. My oncologist has been telling me that women who exercise are less likely to have recurrence than women who do NOT exercise. Sooooo.....I got a new bike this weekend. Actually, Faithandfifty has inspired me to start riding. I'll NEVER match her distance, but I've gotta start somewhere. I've been riding 30 minutes everyday, so I have no idea how far that is. I can't get the crazy odometer thingamajig to work. I'm hoping to work up to more each week.

Good luck to all!!

Howdy all..... Sloth-girl here. Coonie I was riding about 13 to 15 miles an hour toward the end of summer.... 12 to 13 per in the beginning.

Any 'real' cyclist would cringe.....but I kept it up for a total of 827 miles by the end of the summer!!! I know my heart was happier.

Keep up the good work everyone!!

Tae Kwon Do class tonight. Good sweat and hot flash sweat.

Now, if I don't go to sleep soon I won't be able to go to the gym in the morning and will have to go after work and I don't like that as much. But I L O V E my new running shoes so it's more of an incentive to go.

Sleep is what I'm missing. (DH is away and I just don't go to bed when he's gone.) So I'm way too susceptible to food - eating way too much. Not enough exercise in the world for what I ate today....Undecided Oh well.

Hey Jorf--what kind of running shoes do you have?

I didn't have time for exercise today....I worked about 10 hours. Of course, I took alot of steps, so maybe that counts a little.

It's always hard for me to find a good shoe. I think that's why my feet hurt so bad when I've tried walking. Any ideas??

Do any of you guys get hot flashes during a workout?  I do and it drives me crazy!  Sweat on top of sweat!

 Coonie--I used to have really sore feet.  I solved it by getting sneakers that are very cushioned and are not too big.  I tend to buy them a little big but then my foot slides foreward in the foot bed and makes them sore.  The best thing I did was get running shoes with lots of cushioning.  I tend to do aerobics more than walk or run but the cushioned running shoes made everything better!

No workout for me today either.  I worked extra hours.  Unfortunately, I'm really tired but it wasn't from moving my body!  

I'm so happy we are posting our workouts!  This is great!

Do you mind my asking what brand shoe you prefer? I have Nike, New Balance, and Reebok, but none of those REALLY feel just right.

Oh, I'm glad I found this thread. I'm ramping up my activity after a crazy year of surgeries and hip pain (which is finally getting better with chiro and really deep massage, as well as laying off impact stuff like running.)

Today was an hour long, hi-intensity spin claass at the Y. My hubby teaches it, and I help develop the play list and routines. Great fun.

Tomorrow I climb, and hope to get in a long walk, too, to enjoy the fall colors.

Welcome Carole!

I just finished Cardio Step Mix again.  I love this workout!  Now I'm off to our dog training lesson.  Yikes!

The way I look at it is this...if I do nothing else for myself, I exercise.  It is known to help prevent recurrences, so I have become a regular exerciser.  I exercised before bc but now, it is a much higher priority.  I exercise before just about anything else.

Have a great day!
