I walked 2.3 miles in my neighborhood. 

Hot and humid here in south Louisiana.  Came in dripping with perspiration.  Should be less humid tomorrow.  Here's hoping!

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!!
