Re: Post your daily exercise routine

I'm looking forward to your report, Ruthio, and more importantly hope that your bloodwork is just routine. Let us know how your pedometer works.

Five miles this morning was just what was needed to get ready for a day of appointments and another few hours in the car as I'm off to meet my sister for dinner.

Have a fine day.

Re: Post your daily exercise routine

4.9 miles!!
Must admit it was a longer slog than I'd anticipated!
The first half through the park was nice, but then a busy main road, and then a steep hill down and up
But I did it!!

P.S. the blood check is pre- colonoscopy (oh joy!)...I get routinely monitored every few years, so no complaints here re NHS.

Re: Post your daily exercise routine

That's amazing, Ruthio! Well done! Pleased to hear the pedometer did it's work.

Ugh, the necessary evil of the colonoscopy. It's routine here too, every 5-10 years. They nearly killed me last time with the one-size-fits-all prep solution, but that is too gruesome to elaborate . I am sure Lord Ruthio is grateful that you are taking care of yourself, and I wish you smooth sailing!

Whatever I say will be a pun so I'd getter keep quiet!
Suffice to say that being a semi-colon doesn't make things any easier, you'd think it would!
When they ask if I'd like any sedative I always reply yes please the legal limit and then some!
But I stay awake because I watch the screen, I'm nosy like that

Re: Post your daily exercise routine

Hi

I am concentrating on flexibility, on instructions.

I can touch my toes, but the target is get my palms flat on the floor.

New physio is not best pleased with me walking round with 20 kilos.

The look on her face was a picture.

Re: Post your daily exercise routine

Further to the call from the hospital regarding problems with the liver blood tests I found this article...

"Muscular exercise can cause highly pathological liver function tests in healthy men" https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2291230/

It would have the same results with women, too, I would assume. On Saturday I did a hefty workout (by my standards, anyway, lol) and I had the blood tests taken on the following Monday. I just thought I'd mention this in case it has a bearing on the problem, and in the hopes it might help someone in here.

Re: Post your daily exercise routine

Hi

Exercise as all about being as fit as you can.

It is a great feel good factor.

To my mind it is all about being able to do as much as you can, it improves your quality of life.

I had my big injury when I was 38, two years later, told I would never work or walk again.

I was back at work, part time, different job, two years later.

Ten years later I was backpacking, with a leg brace and watching Tigers in wild.

My injuries have come back to haunt me, a fact of life.

I still exercise every day.

Exercise is essential to make the best of your life.

I am nothing special, at all.

There is a young lady on my course.

Horrific Injuries, she has beads of sweat on her forehead when she makes a coffee.

She exercises 5 hours a day and is a laugh a minute.

She is an inspiration, she really is.

I will never be an OGF, Floydy or Surfermom.

Exercise has however allowed me to enjoy life to the full.

It is important, so post no matter how little you can do.

Re: Post your daily exercise routine

Swimfeeders,what an inspirational post. The woman with whom you are exercising is an inspiration - as you have always been. You hit the nail on the head; exercise makes you feel better. Sleep, energy, well-being, and more are among the countless reasons that if you are doing what you can, and use your own present condition as your benchmark for improvement or just getting out there, then the benefits will come.

That was a surprising article, Tachyon. I'll have to read more about that.

It's about to rain so I have to get out there before the gods of thunder and lightning catch up with me.

Enjoy the day!
